Get up to Speed! – Young Engineers shaping the Future.
Following the tremendous success of last year's event, the “Get Up to Speed” engineering event was held in March, as part of the Global Manufacturing Festival 2012, and this year was jointly sponsored by the IMechE, Tata Steel, Firth Rixson and Ekspan. Held at The Blue Shed – Ekspan in Sheffield, it gives youngsters from 5 to 25 the chance to meet leading local businesses to learn about the fundamental role design, engineering and manufacturing have played in their success.
The event featured the world’s fastest boat, the Vestas Sailrocket, a Marussia racing Formula 1 show car and crew and parts from the legendary Vulcan Bomber. Former Tomorrow’s World presenter Maggie Philbin, now the face of technology for the BBC, was at the event, alongside Paul Larsen, world record holding pilot of the Vestas Sailrocket, women’s Bobsleigh World Champion, Nicola Minichiello, and members of the British triathlon performance team, Lois Rosindale and Gordon Benson….plus around 25 of the region's leading manufacturing companies.
In all there were over 1,000 school children and college students at the event over the two days, giving the profession a profile boost to attract the next generation of talented, enthusiastic and innovative engineers who will lead the UK internationally as a centre for engineering and manufacturing excellence.
Following the Regional AGM on 9 May 2011 the Officers of the Yorkshire Region committee 2011-2012 are:
