The 2022 Engineering Taster Weeks hosted by BAE Systems Air Business Unit are taking place in July. This event is a five-day online engineering taster experience open to students aged 16 to 18.
BAE Systems provide some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defence, aerospace, and security solutions employing a skilled workforce of 89,600 people in more than 40 countries.
The Engineering Taster Weeks are aimed at developing young people’s perceptions of engineering whilst providing a unique insight into the world of aerospace and aviation. The main activity of the week will be a group engineering challenge where students will try to solve a realistic engineering problem. Alongside the group activity there will be talks from BAE Systems engineers and skills development workshops.
This year this event will be online so it’s inclusive to students across the UK.
The 2022 Taster Weeks are scheduled for:
· Monday 11 July to Friday 15 July 2022
