BMTA Newsletter Spring 2023 FC

Spring 2023

 

Welcome to the SPRING issue of the BMTA Newsletter

The issue of STEM skills shortages is a perennial one and one that governments periodically attempt – not always successfully – to fix. In this issue we hear from a leading course provider on some of the factors influencing these shortages and what’s being done to address them.

We also hear about a novel initiative designed to get more children interested in survey work. Get Kids Into Survey does what it says on the binocular case. Using games, virtual reality demos and comics, the programme is working hard to ensure that careers in the geospatial industry get the coverage they need among the drive for STEM skills. The NPL is doing its bit with a new scheme to accelerate innovation and increase confidence in product development.

Elsewhere in this issue, Carl Wordsworth, Head of Water Sector, TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory, gives us two-part article covering the basics of measurement uncertainty. He gives a worked example of how measurement uncertainty can be used to determine the level of uncertainty when measuring the volume of a cylindrical tank.

As ever, we encourage new members and invite you to get in touch if you’d like to join our network.

Enjoy the read.
