Hello Heworth Grange,
This week myself and James will be in assembly and introducing you to a great and inspirational role model Elon Musk. We are influenced by people around us everyday. Year 7 when asked who they were inspired by named family, teachers, Christiano Ronaldo. All are great role models and probably all for different reasons. Ronaldo for example is a talented footballer, but he also displays a number of great characteristics which make him stand out, like for example; determination, commitment and a passion to win and succeed in the beautiful game. These characteristics are what make him successful, its not just his footballing ability. He is the first on and last one off the training pitch. The same could be said for great actresses, entrepreneurs anyone really who is successful. Only a few people succeed because of luck alone!
Today you were introduced to Elon Musk… pretty cool guy eh? I have added below the slides so you can have a look at all the videos and share with friends and family. Also check out the company websites mentioned and their career pages. The SpaceX careers page has a load of cool jobs like: commercial director, internship opportunities, propulsion development engineer (making rockets go fast), or software development… there are lots on there. Yes these job opportunities are in America but if this is the type of company YOU want to work for, why let the Atlantic Ocean stop you in your pursuit of job happiness? This is however just one example of a cool company. Have a look and find out what other companies are out there and interest you, thinking also about what STEM skills and knowledge you need if you want to be the next Elon Musk.
See you soon!
