At CGI, we are deeply passionate about supporting STEM education in schools and growing the innovative pool of talent which we recruit from. Myself, and many of my colleagues, have been avid viewers of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES since our own school days and appreciate the inspiration and understanding that they can bring to seemingly complex topics. The Royal Institution CHRISTMAS LECTURES provides us with a platform to engage with schools and young individuals, facilitating discussions about the importance of science in society and our daily lives.
