Promoting Engineering as a Career to Young People

This resource from the Royal Academy of Engineering describes how the London Engineering Project worked to encourage students to see engineering as a potential career path. All activities used an Engineering Message to contextualise engineering and emphasise its impact on the world around us.

The project aimed to create a network for the delivery of activities in schools and to encourage students, especially those from under-represented groups, to take up university courses in STEM subjects.

All activities used a messages taken from the Engineering Messages poster to contextualise the subject. The resource describes the wide variety of activities that could be included and shows how using role models to promote engineering as a career could be very effective.
