All About STEM supports Year of Engineering 2018

All About STEM are proud to be supporting the Year of Engineering 2018.

This year, we will be managing the Big Bang North West for our fifth year – the biggest STEM celebration in the region! We have numerous Big Bang @ School events taking place across the north west and are already receiving entries for The Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition!

We will be continuing with our Engineering Your Future events in Liverpool and Warrington and as we represent the ASK Project and Careers and Enterprise Company, we are always on hand to advise on apprenticeships and careers in all subjects including engineering.

As STEM Ambassador Hub for Merseyside and Cheshire, we will continue to connect expert STEM Ambassadors with schools to inspire students and promote STEM Clubs to all. As North West Regional CREST Support Organisation, we will be encouraging our schools to gain accreditation for their projects with CREST Awards and offering our support.

2018 also marks the return of our legendary robotics challenges… full details will be released soon, click here for updates!

We have so many amazing projects coming up (yes, there’s more!). We can’t wait to share them with you all.

The Year of Engineering 2018

The Year of Engineering is a government campaign which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering.

Working in engineering is exciting, rewarding and creative. We need the next generation of innovators and problem solvers to join the industry and help shape the future of the world we live in.

Over the course of the year, you have the chance to take a closer look at engineering and the variety of opportunities on offer. Get to know one of the UK’s most innovative industries with open days, talks and activities happening across the country.
