National Women in Engineering Day has been set up by the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) to celebrate its 95th anniversary. By encouraging girls into engineering careers we will not only be increasing diversity and inclusion – a business imperative – but enabling us to fill the substantial future job opportunities that have been predicted in this sector.

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! Free online events where school students get to meet and interact with engineers. They are free X Factor-style competitions between scientists (and engineers), where the students are the judges. Students challenge the engineers over intense, fast-paced online live CHATs. They then ASK the scientists all the questions they want to, and VOTE for their favourite engineer to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
