Description

Following the very successful 2017 event, Bring it On returns again to welcome thousands of 9-14 year olds on 3rd and 4th October 2018, at the Beacon of Light in Sunderland.

The event is a collaboration of national and regional organisations aiming to help reduce the skills gap within engineering by inspiring young people at grass roots level. Bring it On showcases North East Engineering to young people with the objectives of educating them about the engineering activities which take place in region, inspiring them to want to be part of it and informing them about what they need to do to become so.

We have businesses from all over the region coming together to demonstrate just how exciting engineering can be, through talks, demonstrations and opportunities to ‘give it a go’. The exhibition will be separated into zones, so pupils can explore different areas within engineering, helping them get to grips with the different applications in a wide variety of organisations. Exhibitors will be in one of 6 exciting zones:

  • Subsea
  • Automotive
  • Civil
  • Chemical
  • Digital
  • Engineer your career

Watch coverage of our 2017 exhibition here, and keep an eye on www.bringitonne.co.uk for ongoing updates about exhibitors and supporting organisations!

In addition to the main exhibition, 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.
