We want to thank everyone who took part in Tomorrow's Engineers Week (#TEWeek15), which ran from the 2nd to the 6th November 2015.
The week went really well, with the help of the schools, teachers and engineering companies who organised over 100 events around the UK to inspire young people about engineering careers. With your help we hope to have inspired young people to uncover their future in engineering.
The campaign was a social media success too, with people across the country tweeting about their events or sharing our #TEWeek15 launch story about cyber sexism and online images of engineering. We’ve put together a Storify featuring highlights from the week below.
Our video bloggers Lily and Nayeeb travelled around the country and saw engineering in action, creating some fantastic videos of their experiences. Take a look at the playlists below, or they are all available on our YouTube channel. Why not show these to your students?
Thorpe Park also ran a competition for Tomorrow's Engineers Week to design the rollercoaster of the future and we saw some brilliant, creative entries from young people across the country.
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week shines a spotlight on engineering careers in a way that young people, and particularly girls, may have never considered before. The week is all about employers, organisations and educators across the country joining forces to host engaging activities that bring the industry alive for young people.
