McLaren join STEM project

McLaren have thrown its weight behind 'Your Life' campaign that will promote participation in science, technology, engineering and maths ('STEM' subjects).

The UK-government backed initiative was launched by Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne MP, and will see McLaren's cars carry the campaign's logo during the upcoming British Grand Prix.

The team will also continue its efforts to actively support the campaign into the future.

"The Your Life campaign is part of a long term economic plan to support our high growth sectors across science, tech and engineering, by bringing together some of Britain's best businesses, institutions and government," Osborne, who visited the McLaren Technology Centre on Friday, said.

"This fantastic commitment by McLaren will help inspire even more young people into well paid jobs in these exciting industries that are essential to our economic prosperity."

Ron Dennis CBE, Chairman and Chief Executive of McLaren Group said: "The UK has a rich heritage in science and engineering. It's no coincidence that eight Formula 1 teams are based here.

"But I want to do more. With continued government backing, I think we can grow the number of high tech firms here in the UK, we can rejuvenate our manufacturing industry, and Britain can help tackle the global challenges that confront us. To do that though, we need the brightest and best young people to study science and maths and to choose technical careers. That is why I am proud to support the Your Life campaign."
