What's coming up this year...
We are planning an all school day, hosted, free, online event which pupils will be able to take part in from their classrooms and will feature live and recorded input from local engineering companies. Guided by our founding principles, the event will be focused on North East pupils aged 9-14 and feature exclusively North East based engineering companies. This online event will communicate the amazing world of North East Engineering to a global audience.
The live event is likely to be broadcast in autumn 2021, to align with the dates of previous Bring it On exhibitions. The day will include Challenges set by engineering companies for schools to take part in from their classroom, live interaction with schools via an online host, and potentially even (pre-arranged) visits to your school by some of our local engineering stars!
Our face to face annual event Bring It On welcomes more than 80 engineering businesses from all over the region to showcase real-life engineering to more than 2000 9-14 year olds, 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 engineering skills gap by inspiring young people at the grassroots level.
