From building skyscrapers, to developing renewable energy technologies and producing confectionery delights for people to enjoy around the world, engineers are working hard behind the scenes to create, make and innovate for today and the future.
@BigBangUKSTEM - Winners of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition Announced
Kaede, a Year 12 student from Rugby School in Rugby was crowned GSK UK Young Engineer of the Year for her project, titled ‘RIHLA’. Kaede created her own algorithm which compares package holidays and suggests the best one to a traveller based 3 different criteria: sentiment, novelty and physical ability. The project has resulted in a fully-fledged working website and was inspired by her grandparent’s desire to have a perfect package holiday for their 50th wedding anniversary.
Finalists for this years #BigBangUK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition have been shortlisted
From designing cheap inserts to improve the function of face masks to writing algorithms to compare package holidays, 10 remarkable projects from young people aged 15 to 18 have been shortlisted to compete for a major national title as part of this year’s finals of The Big Bang UK Young Scientists & Engineers Competition.
A new report calls on government to invest £40 million in improving access to careers provision for students in schools and colleges in England to enable more young people to understand the opportunities available in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) careers and so support the drive to build back better and ’level up’ across the UK in a post-Covid world.
Accessing some of the latest thinking and evidence of what works to encourage young people from diverse backgrounds to consider engineering as a future career will be much easier with the launch of the new Tomorrow’s Engineers website developed by EngineeringUK (@_EngineeringUK).
