Bring it On! The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers
13 February 2020 | Darren Smith
– at Sunderland Stadium of Light on Thursday October 10th 2019.
Bring it On! Is a fascinating, interactive experience designed to inspire and educate students about the various sectors within Engineering and the career possibilities available to them for the future.
A group of 15 enthusiastic students from years 7,8 & 9 were kept busy with activities within zones focussing on civil and structural engineering; subsea oil and gas and renewable energy; chemical, biotech and pharmaceutical; automotive, rail and aerospace; and creative and digital technologies.
We were also lucky to be treated to a presentation from Andy Aldrin, son of Buzz who famously was the second man to walk on the moon, during the Apollo 11 Mission.
Students commented that ‘this is one ‘educational’ visit which was over too quickly!’
Bring it On! Started in 2017 and our students have participated each year, it is so popular that we have already provisionally booked for our students to visit again in 2020!
