Tomorrow’s Engineers is made up of several different programmes, running at various locations across the UK. We need volunteer help for all of these.
The Tomorrow’s Engineers EEP Robotics Challenge is an exciting, practical activity for young students. All of our activities are delivered by an experienced education officer and volunteers play a supporting role in the sessions to bring out and communicate real-world examples of science, technology and engineering careers.
Students learn how to build, program and control autonomous LEGO robots in school or at after-school clubs over the course of a term. The challenge involves using these skills to complete a series of short, exciting aviation missions using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets. From speed racing to humanitarian aid, they’ll demonstrate their skills at challenges held around the country.
Teams also research, design, plan, implement and present their own solution to a contemporary engineering problem – developed with support from the Royal Air Force and Rolls-Royce..
"I encourage anyone with a science, technology, engineering or maths background to get involved with STEM events, it’s a really rewarding role and teachers always tell us how valuable it can be when mentors from industry are involved in the students' development."
