Maddie helps us all have fun

We have added another wonderful website to our Fun at Home section following a great suggestion from Maddie. She has found lots of things to do with her family and friends during lockdown. We look forward to seeing them working in STEM in the future…

“Some of our favourite things to do as a family over this last year have been family movie and game nights (we love board games)! My son and husband have been playing old video games, and my daughter and I have done a bunch of crafts and activities together. With summer near, I want to have some new and fun games and activities we can enjoy over the next few months.

The Fun at Home page http://engineeringtogether.com/fun-at-home/ was perfect in leading me to a bunch of new, fun, and educational activities! Thank you so much for taking the time to put this page together. This is exactly what I was looking for!

My daughter, Maddie, was actually really interested in finding some new activities and she found a page full of STEM projects and activities! Here’s the link: https://constructiondisputes.com/construction-and-building-projects-and-activities-for-kids/

Maddie’s motivation and optimism inspires me! She has kept a positive attitude through this entire pandemic and I think it’s really cool that she found an educational activities page on her own. She actually shared it with her group of girl friends and they think it’s really cool too! “

A lifetime in Engineering Award for our Chair

The Women In Construction & Engineering Awards (Europe) are designed to find the most exemplary women within construction and engineering across Europe to recognise the support and contribution women make to the construction and engineering industries.

We are delighted to announce that our Chair, Paula, have won the Life Time Achievement in Engineering award which is a testament to the great work she has been doing for decades.

Congratulations Paula !

We are In It Together

In collaboration with WES, Newcastle University, Sor Robert McAlpine and Jacobs we put on a series of talks to motivate and inspire everyone to shine despite our New Normal.

The feedback we have received was brilliant and we clearly helped inspire very many. 

Each of the five events were recorded and are available to watch again on our YouTube channel
