Matchtech supports Tomorrow's Engineers Week 3rd - 7th November 2014

Tomorrows Engineers Week is a national campaign led by EngineeringUK and backed by industry, profession, government and education providers to inspire young people, their parents, and teachers to learn more about wide-ranging career opportunities in engineering. As a specialist engineering recruitment company and one of the largest companies in the local area, Matchtech is passionate about inspiring more young people to choose a career in engineering and encouraging more to study STEM subjects in school.

Matchtech will be helping to raise the profile of engineering careers amongst school children in by delivering short workshops to local senior schools in Hampsire and West Sussex over the coming weeks. Our STEMNet (Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths) Ambassadors will speak to students about the benefits of getting into a career in engineering and the different options available to them. The students will then work together in small teams to build the tallest structure they can with only a few resources to hand. The task will teach the groups the importance of communication and teamwork as well as the basic concept of technical engineering skills.

The Matchtech STEMNet ambassadors will conclude this event by giving a short talk about the severe shortage of engineers in the UK, offering students the freedom to ask direct questions and receive immediate answers.
