Virgin Hyperloop One (VHO) has entered into yet another partnership with a leading educational organisation to encourage children and young people to pursue a career in STEM related subjects – this time with UK-based Class Of Your Own (COYO).
“STEM sectors offer young people so many exciting career opportunities, yet we are struggling to see younger generations moving into those sectors. To make young students passionate about our fields, we need to have business and academia team up to engage talent early on,” said VHO’s Managing Director, Harj Dhaliwal.
As global populations grow, the demands for rapid, seamless travel, and more efficient deliveries will continue to rise. VHO is working with a team of 200+ highly qualified in-house engineers toward transforming mobility and trade, while connecting the Gulf region. Hyperloop – a 100% electric, low-emission infrastructure project – is critical for the benefit of millions of people across the region and for the realisation of many governments’ sustainability agendas.
The partnership with UK’s COYO is the latest in a long line of collaborations across the globe in which VHO has entered into partnerships, the last one of which was with Washington University in St. Louis, the US, last June.
“Having young people come into our sector is critical on a global scale. We can achieve this at an early age by capturing their imaginations through exciting curriculum and showcasing the opportunities future infrastructure can offer. The VHO/COYO project has already sparked massive interest among our young talented students, their teachers and parents,” said Alison Watson, COYO Founder and Chief Executive.
