And three exciting days at SSEW2019
A team from Imagineering joined in the annual inspiring Scarborough Science & Engineering Week, celebrating its 10th anniversary.
Imagineering was a Gold Sponsor at this event which was designed to show how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) can make a difference in the real world. It inspired students and their families to consider the exciting opportunities that studying and working in STEM open up to them. There were two days of STEM activities for secondary schools and academies and one for primary pupils with am open evening for parents and families.

SSEW attracted around 3000 enthusiastic students from 40 Schools. On the Imagineering stand they were entertained and inspired by the Hydraulic Arm Challenge, Imagibot; conductivity with energy sticks; assorted maths and geometry puzzles; the rare elements of the smartphone; magnetic and materials challenges.
SSEW was held at Scarborough’s Spa Centre on the seafront, and Imagineering was in good company with other participating organisations including Sirius Minerals; Schneider Electrical; Unison Ltd; McCain Foods; Firmac; Derwent Training Assoc; Castle Group; GCHQ; Dale Power Solutions; Bosch Rexroth; Komatsu; Children’s University; University of Hull and assorted colleges.
Now celebrating its 10th year, the event was founded in 2010 by The Scarborough Business Ambassadors with huge support from Unison Ltd, Scarborough Borough Council and NYBEP Ltd, it 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 Science & Engineering Week (SSEW).
