Tomorrow’s Engineers is a UK wide school engagement programme (funded and led by Engineering UK and the Royal Academy of Engineering) that is a key route to inspiring young people to consider a career in engineering.
On Monday 23rd February, our Year 8 students were treated to a range of activities via a fun and informative roadshow and engaging and interactive workshops aimed at inspiring the next generation of engineering talent. Support for these activities was also generously provided by STEM Ambassadors from Professional Engineering Institutions (such as Sellafield Ltd) and Business and Industry (such as National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme and Manchester University) via the MerseySTEM network.
Engineering drives and revolutionises a range of industries such as film, green technology, medicine, construction, sports and electronics. Culcheth High School champions the essential work of UK engineers, aims to challenge and dispel old ideas about the industry and inform and excite students by showing them just what they could achieve if they choose the right qualifications and experience.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers website http://www.tomorrowsengineers.org.uk/ is also full of accurate, engaging and essential engineering careers information. It features helpful advice, careers resources and plenty of ideas for getting involved with engineering outside the classroom. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in creating and providing such a rewarding and inspirational experience for our students.
