Fresh from Scarborough
Imagineering was just one of a terrific line-up of organisations delivering STEM activities at the exciting three-day Scarborough Engineering Week at the Spa Centre.
Over 2500 pupils from 35 secondary and primary schools were treated to a mind-blowing array of demonstrations and activities. On the Imagineering stand, among assorted challenges, they were able to learn about even the basic materials used in a wide range of things from hip implants and water pipes to aeroplanes and crash helmets.
The annual event is designed to show how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) can make a difference in the real world. It inspires students and their families to consider the exciting opportunities that studying and working in STEM open up to them.
Now in its eighth year, the event was founded in 2010 by The Scarborough Business Ambassadors with huge support from Unison Ltd, Scarborough Borough Council and NYBEP Ltd, was and is driven by the need to promote careers in engineering and the local progression routes available to improve recruitment in the sector.
Empowering young people to take control of their future in an ever-changing world is essential for successful futures, especially as they progress to careers which do not yet exist, use technology not yet invented and solve problems we do not even yet know are problems. This is at the heart of Scarborough Engineering Week (SEW).
Sirius Minerals and the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding LEP were Headline Sponsors, and Venue Sponsor, Scarborough Spa, and Transportation Sponsor, North Yorkshire County Council.
The participant organisations included: Sirius Minerals, Komatsu, Schneider Electric, Cirrus Research, Castle Group, Royal Air Fore, Royal Navy, Army, Woodall Nicholson, McCain, Derwent Training, LeGrand, GCHQ, James Fisher Nuclear, AMRC’ MANTRA, IMechE, Dale Power Solutions, STEM Ambassador.
