Description

We are proud to be a partner in this important project to ensure that we have more engineers to make a difference in our world.

Join us at our information session next week, where you'll get the chance to chat with our Student Recruitment team and ask questions to alumni about what you can expect from life at Imperial. I had always been curious to understand how things work and my dad encouraged me to investigate,” says Dr Somara in her introduction for the book. Alumna Dr Giuliana Di Martino (PhD Physics 2014) is a renowned expert in low-power, sustainable electronic devices. From audiences of curious schoolchildren to enthusiastic science teachers and concerned parents, I have experimented with different methods of communication and kept a keen eye on what others like me were doing.These cookies help provide information on metrics the number of visitors, bounce rate, traffic source, etc.

As someone who is passionate about updating the face of engineering, and making the industry more accessible, I’m excited about this book’s potential to inspire a new generation of engineers and I look forward to showing young people how much of a positive difference can be made through engineering. The project is supported by Lord Sainsbury, whose Gatsby Charitable Foundation does significant work around improving the provision of career guidance in schools, including the promotion of technician job roles and encouraging young people to consider the variety of educational options available to them. Publication dates are subject to change (although this is an extremely uncommon occurrence overall).And the projects displayed in the book are diverse and intriguing: for instance, developing fabric from excess carbon dioxide, building flood alleviation schemes, 3D printing prosthetic limbs and converting waste chicken feathers into packaging. There are all sorts of engineers: aeronautical, agricultural, civil, environmental, materials, communications, development, and so on – something to suit everyone’s interests! Imperial is working with the specialist children’s book publisher What on Earth Publishing, whose publications include the 'Britannica All New Children’s Encyclopedia' and 'It’s Up to Us', a roadmap to sustainability developed with The Prince’s Foundation.

Adam Allsuch Boardman isan illustrator based in Leeds, UK who constructs imagery to inform and amuse in a clear and concise manner.A school kit will be sent free of charge to every secondary school in the UK in Spring 2023, comprising of two copies of the print book (one for classroom use and one for the school’s library), an educator’s guide which aligns with the national curriculum, a laminated timeline for classrooms, illustrating engineering feats that have shaped the world over time and 12 posters for use in the classroom, showing fun topics about each chapter in the book. I am excited about this book because I believe it will help young people make this decision by giving them the key information they need to know about different jobs, and by enabling them to relate to people already successfully doing them. In the book, Beth, who works within the gears team at the AMRC, part of the High Value Manufacturing (HVM) Catapult, said that collaboration, creativity and communication are essential in her job and that she loves the team of brilliant people she works with.
