STEM Alliance with Enginuity and EDT Launched

“We are delighted to be working with EDT – their Industrial Cadet programme is an invaluable bridge between young people and industry.”

Enginuity has partnered with the Engineering Development Trust (EDT) to boost shared ambitions around engaging young people with the exciting career paths available through STEM.

The partnership is announced as EDT hosts a virtual activity event in celebration of having achieved 100k Industrial Cadets on Tuesday 1 February.

EDT’s Industrial Cadet initiative started in 2011 with just 24 students. Since then, it has become established as an awards and accreditation framework aimed at engaging young people in STEM by providing creative, hands-on learning experiences.

Enginuity is supporting today’s event by demonstrating Skills Miner – specially created versions of Minecraft which aim to uncover engineering skills through gameplay and exploration – to the young people taking part.

The 100k Celebration also involves a Q&A with young people and industry mentors, and a challenge which invites Students to redesign their school canteen in order to reduce food waste.

Speaking about the partnership announcement, Ann Watson, CEO of Enginuity says:

“We believe that engineering is key to unlocking some of the world’s biggest challenges – the most significant of which being the creation of a greener, more sustainable planet.

“To achieve this, we need to engage and attract the next generation – capitalising on their innate understanding of technology. Our Skills Miner games were a lightbulb moment whereby we took one of the world’s most popular games – Minecraft – and harnessed it to bring STEM to life.

“We are delighted to be working with EDT – their Industrial Cadet programme is an invaluable bridge between young people and industry. Through this partnership, we hope to amplify each other’s work, such as Skills Miner, and gain network support for the need to capture the interest of young people and attract them into STEM-related careers.

Julie Feest, CEO of EDT & Industrial Cadets says:

“We are delighted to partner with Enginuity in a long-term sustainable partnership. We begin with the introduction of Enginuity’s Skills Miner games, incorporating this into our Industrial Cadets experiences to add a gaming dimension to our activities, and enable Enginuity to reach more students through our extensive school network. Our partnership enables young people to discover their hidden talent in a fun and creative way whilst enabling them to uncover their hidden engineering skills.
“We are proud to be working with Enginuity in closing the skills gap within the engineering sector, and with their support, we are one step closer to reaching our ambition of 250K Industrial Cadets. We are very much looking forward to our partnership and inspiring many more budding engineers, and looking for many opportunities to expand our partnership as we progress.”
