EngineeringUK would like to thank all those who helped inspire the next generation of engineers by sharing your stories, getting schools involved in the first ever Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Schools COP, running an event, submitting a case study, sharing content on social media, or anything else that helped make it such a success.

Initial figures show that Tomorrow’s Engineers Week reached a great number of young people across the UK and inspired lots of exciting conversations in schools:

  • More than 70 students from over 30 schools took part in the Tomorrow’s Engineers Week Schools COP Summit, discussing ideas about how engineers can help tackle climate change and achieve net zero
  • Over 24,000 students registered for Schools COP and more have since debated the ideas from the Summit in the classrooms as part of Tomorrow’s Engineers Week
  • Over 100,000 young people have watched films of inspiring engineers who are helping to tackle climate change on Snapchat, TikTok and Instagram
  • Tomorrow's Engineers Week achieved 112 articles and interviews in the media
