Get ready for Tomorrow’s Engineers Week with free projects and resources!
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week takes place from 5-9 November 2018. The purpose of this week is to change perceptions among young people and inspire them with future careers in engineering.
As this is the Year of Engineering, there’s no better time to get involved in Tomorrow’s Engineers Week where they would like young, budding engineers to focus on topics including saving the environment, animal welfare, staying safe, health and entertainment.
If you’d like to get involved then there are several exciting projects and resources you can use within your class:
Cisco Little Big Futures
A series of resources that can be used in your lessons or as part of your STEM Club, the Little Big Futures asks students to look into fire-fighting and how everyday objects can solve issues around fire safety. After completing the one-hour resources, you can move on to the five hour resources (one for every day of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week!) and even by eligible for a CREST award upon completion.
BP Ultimate STEM Challenge
Aimed at students aged 11 to 14, the Ultimate STEM Challenge asks students to reimagine a solution to a real-life problem. Students can choose the problem themselves which is perfect for getting them engaged in the project, and use their engineering skills to design a solution.
This project is perfect for stimulating creativity, building confidence and inspiring young people with engineering careers.
Want to get your students working with real-life engineers? We have thousands of STEM Ambassadors, many of whom are engineers in different fields, who are keen to come into your class or STEM Club and support you in any way you need. They can provide careers talks or if you’re taking on a project they can help show students the skills they need to tackle it, they can even help you with competitions!
We hope you have fun during this year’s Tomorrow’s Engineers Week and inspire your students with the world of engineering.
