Education recovery focus: November
High quality teaching: Remote & blended CPD
A broad and rich curriculum: engineering
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week is taking place from 8 to 12 November, so this is an excellent month to bring some engineering into the classroom - perhaps via one of our many enthusiastic STEM Ambassadors who work in this field.
Exploring how engineers solve problems and how this impacts the world around us is a great way to showcase how subjects taught in the classroom are applicable to the rest of the world. This year, the week is taking inspiration from COP26 and will look at how engineers and engineering can contribute to tackling climate change and achieving net zero.
The Big Quiz is a great starting point for a quick interactive activity, or sign up for your class to watch the Tomorrow's Engineers Week Schools COP where students around the UK will come together to discuss the vital importance of achieving net zero.
- Looking for more engineering resources to bring into the classroom? Take a look at the resources on the Neon Futures website.
- Students can find lots of careers inspiration too on the This Is Engineering website, including video interviews and career profiles from people working in engineering today.
