SCHOOLS across the UK are being urged to join the Big Assembly as part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week in November.
The Big Assembly will offer schools across the country the chance to take part in the same assembly at the same time to encourage more young people to consider a career in engineering.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Big Assembly is a live video stream, featuring a panel of inspiring engineers who will discuss their careers and the positive impact engineering has on the issues young people care about most.
Thousands of students are expected to take part and will be able to ask questions to the panel and careers experts live via social media. The Big Assembly will also be available on demand after the live broadcast has finished.
In addition to the Big Assembly, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week will use social media, films and events to demonstrate how young people can take their ideas, passions and dreams and turn them into engineering careers.
Now in its sixth year, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week takes place from 5-9 November and provides a unique opportunity for engineers, employers, universities and schools to drive interest in engineering careers, showing young people the ways in which engineers are on a mission to make the world a better place, find innovative solutions and shape the way we live.
Employers, schools, colleges and universities are invited to get involved to help inspire the next generation of engineers by downloading a toolkit of ideas, which also includes more information on the Big Assembly.
As part of the government’s Year of Engineering campaign to celebrate the world of engineering, IPEM created a special medical engineering poster, together with a number of other resources to mark the year, which can be accessed here.
