Making a real impact in Engineering Diversity

Our mission is to empower young people to embrace their creativity, diversity, and engineering mindset to solve the world’s greatest challenges.

We do this by running one-day events for Year 9 and 10 high school students (prior to subject selection) demonstrating that they have the power to change the world through engineering, in collaboration with universities and industry.

OUR IMPACT

  • 77% of students who would not have otherwise considered an engineering career changed their mind after attending an event!

We have also been working to change perceptions of the wider community:
