Imagineering has had a busy if challenging year, as active as ever fulfilling its vision to enthuse and nurture the young engineers of the future amidst a rapidly shifting landscape.
2017 has seen many challenges across the whole sector of education in the delivery of the STEM subjects – science, technology, engineering and maths. Schools budgets are being cut and head teachers, particularly in the primary sector, have had to make some serious decisions in prioritising the subjects they can deliver.
Imagineering continues to meet the challenges of the marketplace – offering more flexibility in Imagineering Clubs and the provision of its projects. It has consolidated its range of kits and continues to research new ideas and opportunities. And it has worked with a number of partners to deliver STEM activities at events across the country.
Bob Shanks, Chairman of Imagineering, commented: “While 2017 was a challenging year, Imagineering continued its mission to spark the imagination of young people through a positive first experience of engineering and technology.
We are grateful for a dedicated hard-working team of volunteers, many of whom have been supporting us for many years and are highly valued ambassadors for Imagineering.
So we are looking forward optimistically to 2018, and with their assistance we will continue to inspire enthusiasm towards engineering, providing good role models.
The Government’s campaign, 2018 The Year of Engineering will provide exciting opportunities for many organisations, including Imagineering, to create a momentum of engagement and experiences. One way and another it will be an exciting year.”
