King's Brune Park

Daniela Caulea, one of the year 10 students at King’s Academy Brune Park, had the opportunity to do her work experience at a contact lens manufacturer. She had the opportunity to discover a vibrant world within the STEM fields. During her week-long stint, she rotated through two different labs, learning to operate equipment, record data, and more. What stood out for her was the chance to conduct her own experiments She said: “Everyone I worked with was lovely, I always felt comfortable asking questions, and I got to hear different people’s own stories and advice. It helped me decide on my own career path.”
