Parents' guide to engineering careers

This easy to read Tomorrow’s Engineers guide helps parents and carers understand more about engineering careers and routes into engineering, providing tips on how to recognise and encourage their child’s engineering talent.

What is engineering? Careers booklet

A leaflet for students aged 11 to 16, describing what engineering is and explaining the different routes into engineering.

The work that engineers do affects billions of people. It is creative and hands-on. It is about solving problems, designing things and improving things. As an engineer, you could tackle...

Where Would You Photograph? (11-14)

In this activity students take on the role of Earth observation scientists submitting a request for an image they would like for their research. This gives them the opportunity to consider the possibilities of pictures taken from orbit (and the limitations) and to write scientifically for a specific audience. It...

Control Systems Engineer: Vicki Hodges

This STEMNET resource describes the background and career of STEM Ambassador Vicki Hodges, an Attitude and Orbit Control Systems engineer working on a project to develop an unmanned spacecraft.

Having joined the Astrium graduate scheme, Vicki has moved around the company and gained experience in a variety of...

Solar Car

In this activity, students explore the questions: *What are the main sources of air pollution? *What is the impact of transport emissions on air pollution and the natural environment? *What can we do to reduce air pollution coming from transport? To what extent can emissions be reduced if solar powered cars instead...
