Engineering Education Scheme Wales - STEM Cymru
About the CPD course
The EESW Project encourages young people to consider a career in STEM by giving students a positive experience working with professional engineers in an industrial setting in Wales. A school/college is linked with a company/organisation who will set a project brief related to a real problem for a team of up to eight 6th form students. During the project period; in liaison with the engineers /company representatives; the team will research and design a solution and produce a final proposal; model or working prototype. The completed projects are assessed; and EESW holds an annual Awards and presentations event to celebrate.
EESW is an independent registered charity running schemes to inspire and motivate young people aged 8 to 19 to choose careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We run numerous activities across Wales, providing students with the opportunity to gain practical experience working with industries, businesses and higher education. Activities include designing, making and racing a model F1 car, working with companies on real engineering problems, experiencing life as an engineering undergraduate at University and investigating, designing and modelling an innovative solution to an environmental problem.
