Help teachers across the UK discover your brilliant engineering experiences

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.

Quality matters to us

We want STEM teachers and their students to enjoy the very best engineering experiences, so we only feature experiences that meet our quality criteria.

Featured experiences should:

  • Include positive and contemporary messaging about engineering
  • Include an explicit engineering careers dimension and aligns with at least 2 of the Gatsby benchmarks
  • Be designed and delivered so it's inclusive for students
  • Be committed to embedding learning and improvements
  • Clearly articulate expected learning outcomes
  • Set expectations around cost and time to the end-user
  • Meet safeguarding, health and safety and data protection standards and have public liability insurance




A variety of experiences

Experiences can take place online, in schools or at other venues
