Engineering Open House Week Resources

Engineering Open House Week is taking place across the UK in June. This is a fantastic opportunity for venues, businesses and organisations across the UK to open their doors to young people, caregivers, schools and teachers.

Offering exclusive behind-the-scenes access, we will highlight the important roles that engineers play in everyday life and demonstrate first-hand the creativity and excitement behind engineering careers.

Engineers bring ideas to life, turn dreams into reality and make solutions to big challenges possible. They design, invent, fix and improve and they are changing our world for the better.

Whether young people are into sports, music, fashion, flying, healthcare, or improving our climate, there’s a place in engineering and technology for them and we want to show them just how diverse and incredible the world of STEM really is.

Within this webpage we showcase some of our resources and activities for partner organisations to run during Engineering Open House Week. We have chosen activities that use everyday materials that most companies should be able to find within the building or purchase locally at low cost. Why not encourage your organisation to join with us and share in the excitement of STEM as young people pass through your doors. 

Please do share your learning highlights with us on social media: @IETeducation

If you think the children did well at your event, why not reward them... 

If you enjoyed these resources, why not try some of our other themed resources too?
