Time to start planning

Summer gives us all time to have a break but with September around the corner it is now time to think about the upcoming school year.

Remember we have lots of resources you can use, check out STEM, Climate and Inclusion pages for a wealth of materials.

Also CSI have funded Lottie Books for leaving in Tees Valley primary schools by STEM Ambassadors.

If the following articles inspire you to get involved then contact us at we.are.engineering.together@gmail.com to find out how you can get free books to use and then give to schools.

Ethan and Lottie

Paula took several sets of the Lottie Books printed by the Cleveland Scientific Institution to Berwick Hills School in Middlesbrough today along with a very special guest, Ethan.

Ethan enthused the students by telling them all about Civil Engineering. This was Ethan’s very first event as a STEM Ambassador but Paula is certain it won’t be his last because his reading of the Lottie Books was brilliant.

The Engineering Together site is awesome!

One of our website users participated in STEM Club at school this past year (she was one of two girls in the club) and her and her family are always looking for fun activities to do at home!

They found our website and told us “the Engineering Together site was awesome. The Fun at Home (or anywhere) page was such a help for us. We have been on the hunt for some STEM info and resources to look into this summer… and our future STEM professional was so happy to see some new resources she hadn’t seen before :-)”

Mum told us she could not be more proud of her daughter for pursuing her passion.. especially in STEM. “It makes me so happy to see her so eager and excited. She is currently super interested in coding… and she wanted to share this resource with you: https://www.qualtrics.com/blog/glossary-of-coding-and-programming-terms/

We at EngTog are of course thrilled at the impact we are having and have added this great resource to Fun at Home (or anywhere!) – Engineering Together page.

Julie adding STEM to the Great Big Green Week

Our Climate Champion Julie is flying the flag for all things STEM at Norton Green Market today during the Great Big Green Week. She is there with her ever present turtle made of plastic and hydrogen cars. Julie uses these to help us all consider our impact on the environment and how our everyday changes to REDUCE make the most difference. The cars show one of the engineering advancements which will help us make the best of the resources we have for the things we need.

Badger Hill gets first book set

Thanks to the Cleveland Scientific Institution many schools in the Tees Valley will be getting a visit from STEM Ambassadors who will leave them with all 5 Lottie Books to read.

The first school attended was Badger Hill who said “the children loved the session and
are excited to read the rest of the books…. you gave a great insight into your role as well as helping to smash stereotypes”.

The children chose Lottie Loves Water to read as a group and what brilliant readers they are in Years 1 and 2.
