Speaker biography 

Jonathan Ellis, BLOODHOUND SSC Ambassador Director.

I have been with Project BLOODHOUND SSC since 2009 and am committed to the Educational aims of "Inspiring the Next Generation of Engineers" through increased awareness of the opportunities available to young people through STEM study. I have delivered a variety of initiatives in the Project and have taken on the role of engaging with not only schools and Colleges but the Business Community and County Councils and developing large scale Bloodhound Education Experiences that meet the economic growth needs of the different areas of the county. Initiatives like this enable us Bloodhound to have a greater reach and penetration, working alongside all aspects of Education and Commerce.

The next 24 months are going to be the most exciting time for the Project and the Education team are making a real impact in developing capacity in STEM and we are still developing more innovative and exciting programmes to encourage young people to follow STEM and an iconic British Project – BLOODHOUND SSC.
