Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (#TEWeek14) takes place from 3-7 November 2014 and aims to change perceptions of engineering among young people aged 11 to 14, their parents and teachers.
The week celebrates the everyday engineering heroes that design, create and innovate to improve our lives.
The national Tomorrow's Engineers Week campaign gives young people the chance to talk directly to engineers and win great prizes, as well as reaching the people who influence them.
- The benefits of engineering careers to young people;
- The opportunities for young people to experience these careers and to become the everyday engineering heroes of the future;
- The many engineering jobs available to young people, especially girls
It also encourages more young people to study STEM subjects, which can not only lead to exciting careers but keeps options open to a world of opportunity in other industries.
How to get involved
Tomorrow's Engineers are calling on all groups including schools, teachers, colleges and parents to be involved in the week. Find out how you can get involved here.
Why not put engineering “on the map” by organising an activity during #TEWeek14 and registering it online? Perhaps you could invite a guest speaker into your school, run an engineering-themed lesson or organise a curriculum visit to a local engineering project? If your school already has events planned that celebrate everyday engineering heroes or seek to inspire the engineers of the future you can register these on the map too!
These are just a few ideas - take a look at the campaign toolkit for everything you need to get involved, including suggested activities, key career messages as well as campaign resources and branding.
