Tomorrow’s Engineers Week, which runs from 7 to 11 November 2016, shines a spotlight on engineering careers in a way that young people, and particularly girls, may have never considered before. The organisers want everyone in engineering to get involved in some way, even if it’s a simple tweet of support with #TEWeek16. Following @Tomorrows_Eng on Twitter would be a good way to start.
Do you know any engineers that go unnoticed or need a little more limelight? Nominations are being sought as part of a feature on hidden engineers, and individuals are welcome to nominate themselves. Please send a photo with the hidden engineer’s name, age, location, job title and a short description (maximum 300 characters) of their role to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another way to get involved is by answering schoolchildren’s questions around how engineers will help to tackle social and environmental problems. The #TEWeek16 team is compiling the questions and will need help to provide responses. It may be a question around flood prevention, space travel, the global food security or on a variety of other topics. The team will use the responses to create content to share via social and traditional media during TE Week.
Any individual or employer interested in getting involved to inspire the next generation during Tomorrow’s Engineers Week 2016 should get in touch via email@example.com and more information is available at www.tomorrowsengineers.org.uk/TEWeek
