Schools around the UK have been invited to take part in a Big Quiz to test students’ engineering careers knowledge.
The Big Quiz, which is part of the eight Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (and the fourth delivered in partnership with Campaign Collective) comes as research has shown that since Covid-19 school closures in March 2020, over three quarters (76%) of 11 to 19 year olds have not accessed formal careers activities.
Tomorrow’s Engineers Week (2-6 November 2020) is designed to help broaden the minds of young people and inspire them about the exciting opportunities in the world of engineering through digital and social media platforms.
A packed calendar will see engineering institutions, employers and schools come together to deliver inspiring activity to show young people the vital importance of engineering careers and deliver advice about how to become an engineer in the future.
Activity taking place includes young engineers taking over social media channels and answering questions from young people and The Big Quiz for students aged 11 to 16.
The Royal Academy of Engineering will also run its annual This is Engineering Day on Wednesday 4 November, celebrating the engineering that shapes our world for the better, whether that’s by making our day to day lives easier or tackling some of our biggest global challenges.Create your own user feedback survey
