Upcoming events: June/July 2015

Organising two different types of Public Engagement events.

The first is  at a Manchester girls’ school in early July where the pupils will be working in groups to tackle a technical problem with an engineer to coach and mentor them to resolve the problem.  Engineers from diverse backgrounds have very kindly agreed to give their time on a pro bono basis simply to show these young people how awesome it is to work in engineering.

The second event, a debate, will be with 3-4 engineers sharing and exchanging their expertise  on how engineering can help improve the quality of life for our elderly people here in Sheffield.  Speakers who have committed their time to this debate include Prof Tony Prescott, Dr Alastar Yoxall and Dr Jenn Rowson – now all we need to bring these guys together  is the right time and date.

More details about the public debate here in Sheffield to follow as information becomes available.

Both events are planned for late June or early July.
