OUR YOUTH OUTREACH INITIATIVE INSPIRES THE NEXT GENERATION OF GLOBALLY RESPONSIBLE ENGINEERS, ENGINEERS THAT KNOW THEY CAN HAVE A HUGE IMPACT ON THE SUSTAINABILITY OF OUR FUTURE AND THE WELL- BEING OF PEOPLE, EVERYWHERE.
The UK needs more young people to become engineers. We believe that if we can successfully demonstrate the difference that engineers can make to people, the communities they live in and the world we all share, then more young people, and more diverse young people, will choose engineering careers.
We reach young people in the UK through delivery of interactive, hands-on workshops in the classroom by our enthusiastic volunteer Ambassadors as part of the National STEM Ambassador Programme.
Our workshops encourage young people to explore the most pressing human development issues, and inspire them to reflect, discuss and realise how they can be part of the solution by becoming engineers. The workshops extend young people’s real-world understanding, application of knowledge, and skills and encourage them to become more globally responsible citizens.
