Bring it On! Was the first event of its kind in the North East and CVEA students had the opportunity to attend a full day exploring exciting businesses available in North East engineering. The event aimed to inspire and motivate young people aged 10-14 to choose engineering as a future career.
The event kicked off with a bang (quite literally) Dr Brunhead’s captivated the audience with a series of explosive activities, he even set a student’s hand and his own head on fire!
The exhibition was split into 6 zones, Automotive, Chemical, Subsea, Digital, Civil and Engineer your Career. Exhibitors included, Unipres, Nexus, VEX Robotics, Caterpillar, Liebherr, EDF Energy, Geek talent and Virgin Money. The students visited each of the stands, talking to the many employers and apprentices from the organisations and trying out the various pieces of equipment or machinery used in their everyday jobs.
