Engineering UK are a Made in the Midlands Bronze Member
EngineeringUK are a not-for-profit organisation working in partnership with the engineering community. Through supporting employers nationally we hope to address the current skills shortages within STEM. We work in partnership with Professional Engineering Institutions, STEM Learning Ltd and delivery partners such as Learn By Design to ensure national coverage and consistent messaging. Our main aim is to inspire the engineers of the future and to improve the supply of engineers from the educational system. We aim to do this by:
By working with a wide range of partners we deliver engaging careers activities that challenge the outdated perceptions of the engineering industry.
Tomorrow’s Engineers seeks to create the next generation of engineers by helping young people from all backgrounds understand the variety, excitement and opportunity presented by a career in engineering. The aim is for everyone between 11 and 14 to have at least one engineering experience with an employer and for equal number of girls and boys to aspire to become engineers.
The Big Bang Fair
The Big Bang is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths for young people in the UK. Everything we do is aimed at showing young people (primarily aged 7 -19) just how many exciting and rewarding opportunities there are out there for them with the right experience and qualifications.
As well as the UK fair which happens once a year, we have a growing programme of events taking place throughout the year and around the country. These include larger events around the regions which host The Big Bang Competition - as well as more local and at school fairs.
Energy Quest is a two part programme by Tomorrow’s Engineers to find out all about sustainable energy. Made up of a free, half-day, in-school workshop (The Energizer) and a practical classroom challenge for students in Year 7, 8 or 9, it promotes engineering careers and routes into those jobs. The workshop aims to improve pupils’ understanding of energy as a resource and the role that engineering plays in the UK’s energy industry.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge invites schools across the country to take their students on a journey of exploration. A curriculum-linked programme involves student teams learning how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots to complete a series of short, exciting “aviation missions”. Using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets they demonstrate skills they’ve learned at challenge events held around the country.
