Scarborough Engineering Week 2016

11th October 2016 @ 9:00 am - 13th October 2016 @ 6:00 pm

What is Scarborough Engineering Week? – A three day annual event designed to show how science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) can make a difference in the real world. It inspires students and their families to consider the exciting opportunities that studying and working in STEM open up to them.

Now in its seventh year, the event was founded in 2010 by The Scarborough Business Ambassadors with huge support from Unison Ltd, Scarborough Borough Council and NYBEP Ltd, was and is driven by the need to promote careers in engineering and the local progression routes available to improve recruitment in the sector.

Empowering young people to take control of their future in an ever changing world is essential for successful futures, especially as they progress to careers which do not yet exist, use technology not yet invented and solve problems we do not even yet know are problems. This is at the heart of Scarborough Engineering Week (SEW).

The event is not for profit and we rely on your support and commitment to bringing Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths to life for young people. Each year we take on board comments we receive to try to improve the event and ensure we are constantly improving. Alongside the event this year we intend to run a SEW2016 pre event Engineering Challenge aimed at encouraging more young people in engineering, the challenge will also be open to families.

Who is it for? – Through our action packed 3 day event, over 4000 young people aged 7-19 and their teachers and parents/carers will benefit from taking part in SEW 2016 – it has something for everyone, from hands-on activities, a show, to discovering the wealth of exciting career opportunities available to them in science and engineering.

SEW 2016 will host two evening sessions aimed at engaging families and will also house the final of the SEW 2016 Engineering Challenge.

The event will also host the annual SEW2016 Dinner – this year we want to celebrate young people’s achievements and our sponsors’ contributions to the event – to do this we are introducing four new awards to be awarded at the dinner.
