05 Jul Stephen Metcalfe MP to host Basildon Engineering Showcase
Stephen Metcalfe, Member of Parliament for South Basildon & East Thurrock, is inciting locals to attend his local Engineering Showcase in Basildon Town Centre (SS14 1EB) on Saturday 14 July 2018.
The Showcase will bring government, industry and the public together to challenge stereotypes and explore the variety, creativity and opportunity of engineering and help inspire a new and more diverse generation of engineers.
2018 is the Year of Engineering – a cross-government initiative to raise the profile of engineering among young people aged 7-16, their parents and teachers. There is incredible activity across a national and local level to encourage young people into the sector.
Too often engineering can be misunderstood– it is estimated only a third of people know what engineers actually do. The showcase is designed to change those perceptions and open people’s eyes to the importance engineering plays in our day to day lives.
