Neon celebrates its very first anniversary

Sep 29, 2021


Happy first birthday to Neon!

The Neon platform was launched by EngineeringUK on 29 September 2020 with the aim of providing teachers with a one-stop-shop for quality assured online and offline engineering outreach experiences and resources.

Previous research from EngineeringUK showed that young people who have taken part in a STEM careers activity were three times more likely to consider a career in engineering. Since its launch, Neon has made a great impact - below are some of the key stats from the past 12 months:

  • 65,000 visitors have come to the site, looking at over 220,000 pages
  • 1,750 teachers and careers advisors from 1,100 schools are now registered users
  • The careers resources have been downloaded over 26,000 times
  • 890 teachers and careers advisors subscribed to the weekly email

 Neon features a host of great content, including:

These figures only represent a portion of Neon’s success in providing engineering outreach activities to teachers and students and the next 12 months are guaranteed to be even bigger and better!
