Milestone Infrastructure was thrilled to ‘take over’ Bishops Waltham Junior School as part of their STEM week, on Wednesday 20 March.

Inspiring the next generation of highways workers, our Hampshire contract team ran highways themed lessons for all year groups, benefitting students aged between 7 and 11 years old.

Raising awareness of what we do at Milestone, the day saw over 30 of our colleagues get involved. Activities ranged from ‘the importance of soil’ with our Environmental Advisors, to our projects team giving the pupils hands-on experience in infrastructure, working to build bridges using Lego.

The highlight of the day was the show & tell aspect, where the pupils got to see a gritter and one of our innovative pothole repairing machines, a Dragon Patcher, in action.

Speaking on the day, Adam Watts, Communications and Social Value Manager, said: “Running a full day of lessons was ambitious, but it turned out to be a huge success. This wouldn’t have been possible without the enthusiasm and hard work of all our volunteers, thank you to everyone involved.”

Darren Campbell, Headteacher at Bishops Waltham Junior School, said: “When Milestone approached us to offer a day of STEM activities, we weren’t quite sure what to expect. We’re so thrilled with the result, our students were engaged from the very start, and it was a joy to see them flourish as the day went on.”

At Milestone, we are passionate about creating social value opportunities in the communities where we work, to ensure that we are creating a positive legacy, in line with our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) commitments.
