Tomorrow's Engineers Week (#TEWeek18) takes place from 5-9 November 2018 and aims to change perceptions of engineering among young people, their parents and teachers and to inspire future engineers.

One of the exciting ways you can get involved is by joining in the ‘live’ assembly on Wednesday 7th November at 10.30am.

The assembly will be a live video stream, featuring a panel of inspiring engineers who will discuss their careers and the positive impact engineering has on the issues young people care about most, such as protecting the environment, animal welfare, safety and security, health and entertainment.

The aim is to inspire and inform young people about the wide range of careers within engineering and to break down some of the stereotypes linked to engineering careers.

I saw a quote recently and thought this a one for all of us to take note of:


"Technology is a wave: you can either ride it or wipe out...."

Encourage your pupils to ride the wave and inspire some future engineers.


If it isn’t possible to join live, the broadcast will be available to later download.

In addition there is a brilliant annual Robotics challenge for 11-14 year olds to take part in and details can be found here!
