Bring It On 2018 welcomed more than 80 engineering businesses from all over the region who showcased real-life engineering to more than 2000 children, getting them actively involved in the activities and encouraging their curiosity and interest.

The event is a collaboration of national and regional organisations aiming to help reduce the skills gap within engineering by inspiring young people at the grassroots level.

In addition to the main exhibition, Bring It On will host the North East Regional Heat of the ‘Big Bang’ national competition which aims, amongst other things, to raise awareness of the range of STEM careers available to young people and the routes into those careers.

The event will be split into 6 exciting zones, showing the diverse range of engineering opportunities:

Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables, Energy

Civil, Structural, Construction

Automotive, Rail, Aerospace

Chemical, Biotech, Pharmaceutical

Creative, Digital, Technology
