Tackling underrepresentation by reaching children who aren't familiar with engineering

Apr 27, 2021


Dr. Mollie Bourne, Senior Research and Impact Manager at EngineeringUK, on addressing underrepresentation in engineering and reaching children who aren’t familiar with engineering.

"What we need to do is ensure that we are accessing not just those children that have the initial exposure to or familiarity with
engineering through key influences in their childhood, but we also need to make sure that we're reaching those children who don't have the familiarity with engineering, and we need to show them that engineering is a potential career option for them."
