Bring It On, now in its fourth year, will welcome more than 80 engineering businesses from all over the region to showcase 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 invite North East universities and FE colleges to send their final year engineering students to meet NE based engineering organisations. To have a look at the organisations that exhibited at last year’s event go to

The event will be split into 5 exciting zones, showing the diverse range of engineering opportunities:

Civil, Structural, Construction

Automotive, Rail, Aerospace

Chemical, Biotech, Pharmaceutical

Creative, Digital, Technology

Bring it On is held over two days, one devoted to primary schools and the other to secondary schools.  The audience will be young people from 9-14 with the objective of influencing them before they commit to GCSE options.
