Engineering for the Future

 

Techniquest Glyndŵr is celebrating after receiving a £4,970.46 grant from the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Our ‘Engineering the Future’ project will develop and deliver a new driverless vehicle workshop for schools using CrumbleBots robot kits, together with help from local engineers.

 

 

International Women in Engineering Day

As part of this project, we are organising a schools' event to celebrate International Women in Engineering Day.  Local engineers are volunteering their time to provide actvities for female KS3 students from 5 local schools, to help them believe engineering is for people 'like me'.  The CrumbleBot workshop will be in use, along with the ICE Bridge, a hands-on challenge from local IMechE members, a Technocamps workshop and activities from Bureau Veritas.  TechUp&Go are bringing along a Cruzr robot and local young entrepreneur April will be giving the inspirational speech this year.

         

 

The Engineering Education Grant Scheme (EEGS), which is run by the Institution of Engineering and Technology and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, aims to engage young people aged 5-19 in learning about engineering and to develop the professional skills of those involved in supporting Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics learning and careers awareness.

 

                                             

 

 

The Institution of Engineering and Technology is one of the world’s largest engineering institutions with over 168,000 members in 150 countries.

The IET is working to engineer a better world by inspiring, informing and influencing our members, engineers and technicians, and all those who are touched by, or touch, the work of engineers. For more information visit www.theiet.org.

 

The Institution of Mechanical Engineers was established in 1847 and has some of the world’s greatest engineers in its history books. It is one of the fastest growing professional engineering institutions. Headquartered in London, we have operations around the world and over 120,000 members in more than 140 countries. www.imeche.org.
