Virtual Bring It On 2020 is a new online programme of inspirational video content aimed at 9-14 year olds. The new videos aim to Educate, Inspire and Inform young people across the North East about the engineering opportunities available to them in the future.
Launching 3rd June, each episode showcases a different leading North East engineering company. The episodes are released weekly on this page of our website and will feature company’s engineers talking about their role and what the company produces. Students will have the opportunity to get to know these engineers; how did they get into engineering, what inspired them to become an engineer, what a day is like in their job, and even where they stand on things like McDonald's vs Burger King!
The shows uncover the real people behind North East engineering, showcasing the amazing things their companies are doing, right here, in our region. Providing students with an opportunity to picture their future selves at work.
Follow #BringItOnNE for weekly updates on new video releases.
The series is split across 5 exciting subsectors, showing the diverse range of engineering opportunities:
Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables, Energy
Civil, Structural, Construction
Automotive, Rail, Aerospace
Chemical, Biotech, Pharmaceutical
Creative, Digital, Technology

An excellent initiative to provide continuity in the current situation and I am sure that teachers and young people will benefit.

This promises to be a lively and imaginative project, which during the present challenging time will show young people the wealth of interest that there is in the world of engineering and technology, so important to the country, and particularly to our own area.
Nigel Heslop, President, of the Cleveland Scientific Institution
Where better to find a solution to the cancellation of Bring It On than to go to the very companies that would have been part of the exhibition.
Tony Platten, Platten Family Fund
The North East is yet again showing its enterprising approach in developing this new format for Bring It On. Congratulations to all concerned and I feel sure it will be highly welcomed by students and teachers
