Bring It On, The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers, is targeted at young people aged 9-14. It aims to raise the aspirations of North East youngsters and contribute to closing the engineering skills gap in the region.
We exclusively showcase North East based engineering companies. They range from large multinationals with a presence in our region to small SMEs. Engineering companies exhibit in five zones representing the five major engineering sectors in the region; Automotive, Rail and Aerospace; Creative & Digital Technology; Civil, Structural and Construction Engineering; Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables and Energy and Chemicals & Processing.
Three live exhibitions have been run, in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, due to the Coronavirus pandemic, we delivered Virtual Bring It On, a series of 20 videos featuring North East based engineering companies and the engineers that work for them. In 2021 we plan to deliver a packed virtual programme of activity on 4th November for schools to engage in from the classroom. Visit our Get Involved in 2021 page for more.
