Make a difference – be an engineer
This new, interactive presentation introduces 11-14 year olds to engineering, inspiring them to think about a career in engineering. Developed in collaboration with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Institute of Physics, Institution of Civil Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology, along with input from teachers and volunteers, it covers the diversity of engineering with the central message that engineers can improve people's lives and solve problems around the world.
**NOTE: We strongly recommend that you read the Presenter guidelines before delivering this presentation. You can download these using the button below or find out more by reading the 'Presenter guidelines' section below.
The presentation covers:
- What engineering is
- What engineers do
- How engineers impact on our everyday lives
- The range of jobs engineers are involved in through real life examples
- The different routes you can take to a career in engineering
- Where the jobs will be in the future
It has 13 examples of real engineers to explore with children along with videos of them at work, ideas for short activities you can do and discussion points to get them and keep them engaged.
To help you understand how to use the slides we have developed a set of Presenter Guidelines which walk you through slide by slide so you can feel confident when you deliver the presentation to young people.
