Bring it On 2018!

The North East Exhibition for Future Engineers

Design Network North are very proud to be involved in Bring it On 2018, the North East’s biggest engineering celebration which this year will be one of the first major events to be held at the Beacon of Light this October.

Bring it On! showcases exciting opportunities to young people aged 10-14 with the objective of educating them about engineering activities which take place throughout the region and inspiring them to become part of it.

The exhibition will feature five exciting zones:

  • Subsea, Oil & Gas, Renewables, Energy
  • Automotive, Rail, Aerospace
  • Chemical, Biotech, Pharmaceutical
  • Civil, Structural, Construction
  • Creative, Digital, Technology

Bring it On will be taking place on the 3rd-4th October at the world-class Beacon of Light for primary and secondary school pupils with engineering companies demonstrating their activities and products through interactive displays and seminars.

There is already a great line up of talented businesses from all over the region ready to tell pupils and their teachers about the many possibilities engineering can offer to the North East.

In addition to the main exhibition, which will again exclusively feature North East Engineering companies, Bring It On! will host the North East Regional Heat of the ‘Big Bang’ national competition which aims, amongst other things, to raise awareness of the range of STEM careers available to young people and the routes into those careers.

 

How can you get involved?

 

There are still an opportunities to get involved and help inspire the next generation of engineers:

Exhibit: We are filling up quickly, but still have some availability for businesses to take a stand and showcase some of their innovation in an exciting and engaging way. This exhibition is not just about giving out flyers, its about inspiring the next generation, and really engaging them in the possibilities of engineering.

Get your schools involved: We are nearly at capacity, but still have a few school places left so if you know any kids who you think would love to attend, then let their school know of this great opportunity.

Support the event: There are opportunities available to financially support different aspects of the event to make sure it really makes a difference to those attending.
