We had a chat a while ago with a great group called Curiosity connections, a network for people and organisations supporting and delivering STEM education in primary schools across the West of England. They were looking for some members working in the field to feature, and a couple of our brilliant members stepped up. So Big thanks to Elena and Chew .. see if you can spot them!
Engineering Curiosity is a set of 52 ‘top-trump’ style cards, each themed on a real-life local engineer from the West of England region. Through the cards, children can explore the diversity of engineering, its people, skills and future career opportunities.
If that also sparked your curiosity and you’re interested in Engineering it may be worth popping onto Bristol Universities talks about postgraduate learning in:
We will be doing a lot of background work over the next couple of weeks as we have some great stuff we are implementing to be even more super useful to you all. Until then we hope you all have a lovely brilliant relaxing and safe Christmas – and here’s hoping that you don’t have some rather overweight beardy strange guy coming down your chimneys and spreading COVID, seriously shouldn’t someone tell him its not a great idea during a pandemic! and is he really a key worker ..?
During the week we spotted that the UKESF has pledged its support for Tomorrow’s Engineers Code – and, as we love the UKESF and all that it does, we took a look and signed up too. We know that as a group we mainly concentrate on the over 18’s but inevitably we have become involved in a project for the under 18’s that is very exciting and currently under construction (more about that later) so this simply makes sense for us. It may also make sense to some of you reading this so take a look and see if you should be signing up.
Launched in October 2020, the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code is a commitment to work toward common goals to increase the diversity and number of young people entering engineering careers.
We need to work harder than ever to ensure that engineering careers are accessible for this generation of young people – for their own life chances and so that we have a diverse and insightful workforce that enables the UK to thrive. Join over 100 organisations who have pledged to work together through the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code and find more joined-up ways to help all young people understand and be inspired towards engineering careers.
Signatories of The Code make four pledges about their approach to funding, designing, delivering and learning from engineering-inspiration activities. If you are an organisation that funds or delivers engineering inspiration activities, join the Tomorrow’s Engineers Code.
