Join us to drive diversity in Engineering
Our ambition is to create a diverse, inclusive and highly skilled community to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future through exciting and rewarding careers in Engineering.
Please note, you will need access to Minecraft Education Edition on your school devices to participate in the lessons. If you do not have Minecraft:EE yet, just let us know as we may be able to help.
We recognise the additional strain that COVID has put on teachers and students alike so we have ensured that this programme is exciting and engaging for students with minimal preparation from teachers.
We work alongside teachers to deliver the live STEM enrichment lessons online in the first 2 weeks of July (at a time that suits their timetable), and we support and provide teachers with tools and knowledge to use Minecraft:EE for further lessons, plus information about Engineering to provide guidance to young people about opportunities and different pathways.
Please register to participate by the 28th May 2021.
