#INWED21 is celebrating the amazing work that women engineers around the world are doing, not just to respond to the pandemic, but also to support lives and livelihoods every day – the best, brightest and bravest women in engineering, who recognise a problem, then dare to be part of the solution; who undertake everyday ‘heroics’ as much as emergency ones. Find out more at inwed.org.uk.
We have launched our ‘engineering heroes’ activity, inviting children aged 4-14 to take part and become an engineering hero.
We want to inspire boys and girls by showcasing our Cranfield heroes plus heroes from some of our partner organisations – about the possibilities of STEM and the broad range of roles our heroes are working in.
Celebrating #INWED21 with our engineering heroes exhibition – 23 June
This fun and challenging activity will culminate in an online exhibition of entries from schools, groups, families and individuals joining our hero alliance – on 23 June – so, be an engineering hero with us this summer!
Activities will be available for download from 14 May. You can do your engineering hero activity and send it to us by 10 June.
Adults submitting the work to us can read about how to do that, along with providing consent here at the bottom of this page.
About the activities
We have designed activities for ages: 4 to 7, 7 to 11 and for 11 to 14.
Activities for younger children are suited to a single lesson (or other group session setting), as a family group activity, or for individual children to enjoy with a parent or carer.
The challenge activity for older children (11 to 14) is designed to be more in-depth so that it can be completed over one or two sessions or done as a mini-project.
