One of the Managing Partners of CAL International Lee Fogg, along with other members of the CAL team, held interactive workshops at the ‘Engineering your Future’ event, run by representatives of STEM education (science, technology, engineering and maths) and was encouraging the development of the next generation of engineers.
Held at the Halliwell Jones Stadium in Warrington, the day consisted of a number of leading engineering companies in the UK holding a variety of workshops for sixth form students from across the North West. The event was an inspiring introduction to the different careers in engineering, enabling the children to see that engineering is a career worth pursuing.
Lee and the CAL team delivered 5 workshops, explaining to the children who CAL International are and the varied types of engineering work they do including automotive, oil and gas and rapid prototyping engineering. They also gave an insight into the life of an engineer and Lee explained the different routes that youngsters like themselves can take in order to get into an engineering career in the future with a a company like CAL International, including apprenticeships.
The workshops also consisted of a fun written test that the children completed in groups. The overall team with the highest score from the day won a selection of engineering based prizes including a metal 300ml ruler, engineering reference pocket book, engineers reference handbook, digital vernier calliper and CAL metal international time zone device. The prizes were worth over £60 for each member of the winning team!
Lee added, “It’s great to be able to attend these kinds of events and to try and inspire these students who have an interest in the field. Engineering is an absolutely fantastic career to be in, is always changing and has endless possibilities as to where it can take you. All the children at the event were very receptive and showed real promise to be the engineers of the future!”
