The past couple of months have been fabulous for our Live Online Engineer Events. It has been a difficult job selecting who to mention, with such a plethora of engineering talent to choose from!
Firstly, I have to mention Shane Miller: a Senior Engineer at Network Rail who, for a few days, held the record for the most number of potential pupils participating in a 2020 event, with some 2,234 online – only to be slightly edged out by the 2,674 pupils on Facebook’s Filip Hrenic’s event just 6 days later!
And then, to top it all, we held an event on February 27 with Roboticist, Nick Valentine from the University of Salford, who had 5,096 pupils participating in his talk.
A special mention also goes out to Director of Engineering Projects for Flight Simulation at Thales UK, Victoria Howells, one of our online engineering superstars.
Also, our ever-wonderful, Jenny Roberts, Mechatronic Engineer and Engineering Lecturer at Lancaster University who stepped-in to cover a slot at short notice. If this is something you too would like to be involved in, please contact email@example.com for future engagements, as an engineer or participating school.
For #BSW20 6th-13th March we have the MOST EXCITING line up for the live online engineer interviews – where your #school pupils will get to meet an engineer & interview them for the #IfYouWereAnEngineerWhatWouldYouDo #STEM competition!
