THE NORTH EAST EXHIBITION FOR FUTURE ENGINEERS SUPPORTER OPPORTUNITIES

Following the very successful 2017 event, The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers will be held again in 2018 at the Beacon of Light building in Sunderland on October 3rd and 4th 2018.

As in 2017 the objective will be to showcase North East Engineering to young people with the objectives of Educating them about the engineering activities which take place in the North East of England, Inspiring them to want to be part of it and Informing them about what they need to do to become so.

In addition to the main exhibition, which will again exclusively feature North East Engineering companies, Bring It On will host the North East Regional Heat of the ‘Big Bang’ national competition which aims, amongst other things, to raise awareness of the range of STEM careers available to young people and the routes into those careers. The 2017 Exhibition resulted in incredible feedback from participating companies, pupils and their teachers. As last year exhibitors will be in one of five exciting zones, Automotive and Transport, Chemical and Processing, Digital, Oil, Gas and Subsea, Civil and Structural. The founding principles which guided us to this very successful result will be maintained in 2018.

These founding principles include:

  • The primary audience for ‘Bring It On’ will be young people in the age range 10-14, before they choose their GCSE options
  • The only organisations permitted to exhibit as part of the ‘Bring It On’ exhibition will be Engineering
  • Companies who carry out engineering or manufacturing in the North East of England
  • The primary objectives of ‘Bring It On’ are to raise the aspirations of young people in the North East and to contribute to closing the engineering skills gap
  • ‘Bring It On’ will be non profit making and no school or company will be charged a fee to attend.

 

A detailed impact report on the 2017 event is available on request.

 

The event managers in 2018 will be RTC North who are also the current contract holders for the North East STEM Hub and Big Bang Near Me programme in the North East. As in 2017 the exhibition will be actively supported by EngineeringUK (Tomorrow’s Engineers), STEM Learning, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, working with the local branches of the other major Professional Engineering Institutions, and Rotary International.

For further information on how to be involved and sponsorship opportunities, please contact Carol Harrison, RTC North.
