Dare to imagine the energy world of tomorrow with OPITO’s virtual Engineering Experience. The Smallpeice Trust has partnered with global safety and skills organisation OPITO, to inspire future energy careers by connecting engineering experts worldwide with the next generation of talent.

The virtual Engineering Experience will challenge like-minded young people to put their STEM skills to the test, from the comfort of their own home over four half-days. This course is for 12 to 14-year-old students (Years 8/9 or equivalent).

The course covers three different areas of engineering: cyber security, electrical and space engineering. Alongside hands-on activities, such as creating prototypes, students will hear from professionals currently working in the industry to ask questions about the future of energy, their experience and what a career in the sector may look like. Students will also refine their problem-solving ability, a key skill for engineers. All materials required to complete the course will be delivered in advance.

'I enjoyed the hands-on activities the most as it gave me a chance to interact, be creative and think outside the box.' Engineering Experience Virtual Course Student 2022
