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.
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 space missions in teams using LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 sets.
From assembling the crew to launching the satellite, students demonstrate the skills they’ve learned at challenge events held around the country. Teams also research and present their own solution to a contemporary scientific problem developed by LEGO Education with NASA.
• We need volunteers to assist in school as students are learning how to build and program their robots, and to help by providing guidance on undertaking research for their presentation.
• We also need volunteers to help or judge at regional challenge events held around the UK.
If you’re interested in robotics, computing, software, design or space then this could be for you, although volunteering is open to all suitable candidates.
"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."
