Engineers in all sectors are working to make the world a better place so this year’s Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, 4-8 November, will be focusing on the impact engineers make on the nation’s health and wellbeing.

Space, aerospace, broadcast and rollercoaster engineers

Now in its seventh year, the week, led by the engineering community, provides a platform for employers to work effectively with schools to inspire more young people to consider a career in engineering and has a theme of "Be creative. Help others. Shape the future." 

STEM Learning will be supporting Tomorrow’s Engineers Week in the build-up and during the week itself. Whether you are a primary or secondary teacher, a STEM Club leader, or a STEM Ambassador, here are some ways you can get involved:

For schools and colleges

Check out our range of classroom engineering resources, support and inspiration to discover how engineering can be used to enrich your lessons.  Primary resources are here, with secondary resources here

Request a STEM Ambassador to come and talk to students about being an engineer in the workplace. Find one of our 30,000 STEM Ambassador volunteers here.

For STEM Club leaders

Check out our STEM Club resources, to help you bring engineering to life in your club during Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, or at any other time. Find the resources here

For STEM Ambassadors

We would like you to help demonstrate the diversity that exists in engineering, not just in terms of background, but also in the variety of roles and sectors. Please send us your name, job title and a sentence or two describing how you make the world a better place by being creative, helping others and/or shaping the future. Share with us by email here or on Twitter @STEMAmbassadors

There are lots of other resources and activities available from the Tomorrow’s Engineers website, including a fun quiz for students to find out what kind of engineer they could be. Visit the main website and join in on social media, using #TEWeek19
