Serco's partnership sees them become co-sponsors of the programme and incorporates a £10,000 donation to enable the museum to engage with over 25,00 children a year in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activities.

Welcoming over 1.3 million visitors per year, the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) helps to tell the story of how the Royal Navy and our naval heritage shaped Britain’s history and communities. Serco has been supporting the Royal Navy for over 25 years, providing engineering and asset management services at several Royal Navy bases, including tugs and support vessels that enable RN ships to fulfil their missions.

These Royal Navy bases are also home to the museums, which are part of the collective including the Fleet Air Arm museum at RNAS Yeovilton and Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.

With decades of experience in engineering and asset management careers, Serco will be supporting the STEM programme and providing hands on engagement by sharing their knowledge with the next generation at STEM events throughout next year.

Doug Umbers, Managing Director of Serco’s UK Defence business and Lt Cdr Elliott Brown, RN STEM Ambassador were joined by leaders from Serco’s Engineering and Asset management team and the NMRN, when they recently met at the Historic Dockyard to celebrate this new partnership.

Doug Umbers, commented: “I am excited to be part of this journey with the National Museum of the Royal Navy to engage young people from our local communities in STEM activities. Our team has a wealth of experience to pass on to the next generation and help to inspire them about future STEM career opportunities in the Royal Navy and industry partners.”
