Unipress - Bring it On!

16 Feb 2017

Bring it On! 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.

There are 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’.   Bring it On! Will open its doors to thousands of 9-14 year olds on the 3rd and 4th October 2017 at the Stadium of Light in Sunderland.

CVEA students had the opportunity to be part of the launch day at Unipres on Wednesday 15 February 2017.  The students took part in a tour of the Unipres plant, visit the quality Lab and the Engineering Department.

The group had a fantastic time learning about the various aspects of engineering and what it would be like to work in a large plant of press technologies.

The students also had the opportunity to operate the robots, moving parts from one area to another and welding parts together!
