STEM activities completed in Yorkshire 

The Yorkshire region is doing a lot to inspire the next generation of budding Engineers. We invite you to view some of our activities and to consider volunteering your time.
 

The Big Bang Yorkshire and Humber

The Yorkshire region actively supports the national Big Bang initiative. The Yorkshire and Humber event held in June at Doncaster Race Course was supported by our members who ran a design, build and test activity using Kinex parts. Students built cars inspired by the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car project. A test track allowed the cars to be launched using compressed air.
While building and testing was taking place our members talked about different types of engineers involved in the design and make of the actual Bloodhound car. Literature for about engineering careers was given out to students, teachers, carers and parents.
