Bring it On!

North East online video exhibition for future engineers.

Bring it On!

Virtual Bring It On 2020 is a new online programme of inspirational video content aimed at 9 to 14 year olds. The new videos aim to educate, inspire and inform young people across the North East and wider UK about the engineering opportunities available to them in the future.

Each video showcases a different leading North East engineering company, featuring engineers talking about their role and what the company produces. Students will have the opportunity to get to know these engineers and find out: how they got into engineering, what inspired them to become an engineer, what a day is like in their job, and even where they stand on things like McDonald's vs Burger King! The shows uncover the real people behind North East engineering, showcasing the amazing things their companies are doing. Providing students with an opportunity to picture their future selves at work.

A series of 20 episodes will be released weekly and are accessible via the Bring it On website.
