STEM - Bring it On! The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers

On Thursday 10th October 15 Year 10 students were invited to attend Bring It On! The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland. 

Bring It On aims to inspire, educate and motivate young people aged 9-14 to explore engineering as their future career, by showcasing just how exciting engineering can be!

The event is a collaboration of national and regional organisations aiming to help reduce the skills gap within engineering by inspiring young people and raising awareness of the range of STEM careers and the routes into those careers.

The event took place over 5 exciting zones where students could explore exhibits from the diverse range of engineering opportunities and interact with employers from our region.

Students particularly enjoyed being able to drive a digger in the construction zone and creating online trolls using virtual reality technology to fight crime.

  • Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables, Energy
  • Civil, Structural, Construction
  • Automotive, Rail, Aerospace
