Tomorrow’s Engineers Week takes place from 7 to 11 November 2022 and is celebrating its 10th year with a live schools event – Future Minds Live – to inspire the next generation of young people into an engineering career.
Since it began in 2012, hundreds of thousands of young people have been involved in Tomorrow’s Engineers Week. This year, the focus is on looking forward to the future of engineering and schools from all over the UK will be invited to come together and discuss their ideas for what engineering could achieve in the next decade.
5 ways to get involved
We have created a toolkit for employers and PEIs with all the information they need to get involved in Tomorrow’s Engineers Week.
- Showcase personal engineering stories
Take part in the discussion by sharing your own answers and ideas in response to questions we’re discussing in Future Minds Live:
- How do you think engineering will help shape your sector/entertainment/sport/ technology/the environment in the next decade?
- What do you think is the most exciting engineering development that could happen in the next 10 years?
Share inspiring stories of your engineers and use #TEWeek22 on social media. Social media templates are available on the website.
- Future Minds Live and Broadcast
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Future Minds Live is taking place on 7 October and will see young people come together with inspiring engineers to discuss how engineering will help change the world around us, in particular how engineers are at the heart of shaping 4 sectors – entertainment, sport, technology and the environment. This discussion will then be turned into a 30-minute Future Minds Broadcast and lesson plan, which will launch on 7 November.
You can take part by sharing your own answers and ideas in response to questions we’re talking about in Future Minds Live. Use our sample copy to email local schools to encourage them to watch the Future Minds Broadcast and take part in the discussions.
- National Engineering Day
This year, National Engineering Day (formerly This is Engineering Day) will take place on 2 November, and will celebrate engineers who are improving lives through engineering. Share a message on social media about how engineers improve lives through engineering using #NationalEngineeringDay.
- Events and MPS
If you have any activities or events happening during 7 to 11 November, don’t forget to badge them as part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week – name check the Week, use the Tomorrow’s Engineers Week logo and use #TEWeek22 on social – and we will support them further.
- Engineering outreach with impact
Show your commitment to creating engineering outreach that really makes a difference:
- Join The Tomorrow’s Engineers Code community of over 200 organisations working toward common goals to increase the diversity and number of young people entering engineering careers
- Get inspiring guidance on Tomorrow’s Engineers, a hub that provides resources and information to help you get the most from your engineering engagement activity
- Be part of Neon and help thousands of teachers across the UK discover your brilliant engineering experiences. Neon is free for users and contributors, with no hidden costs.
