Neon brings together the UK's best engineering experiences and inspiring careers resources to help STEM teachers bring their subject to life with real-world examples. We aim to make life easier for teachers by curating the best experiences so they can be confident they are high quality with clear learning outcomes, they are engaging and inclusive, they support careers education and highlight real-world application of engineering.
We want STEM teachers and their students to enjoy the very best engineering experiences, so we only feature experiences that meet our quality criteria.
Experiences that meet Neon quality standards:
Head to Tomorrow's Engineers' Improving Practice hub where you'll find curated resources from across the STEM sector and beyond to help you to design, develop, deliver and evaluate your inspiration activities.
Experiences can take place online, in schools or at other venues
Workshops: Practical activity sessions (one-off or a series)
Speakers: Visitors with inspiring stories to tell
Projects: Challenges where students research and display their findings on a specific topic
Competitions: Challenges with a time limit, a set of criteria for judging and a winning team or individual
Events: Fairs, festivals and exhibitions for learning away from the classroom
Trips: Inspiring visits for students to immerse themselves in engineering
Neon connects schools to experiences in their local area.
As a contributor you can say where your experience is available. For in-school and offsite experiences, this can range from a specific postcode to a town, local authority, region or the whole of the UK. Online experiences are available to everyone.
You can also target your experience exclusively at schools that serve underrepresented communities. Find out more
