I was lucky enough to be asked to give an assembly at the wonderful Swaffham Bulbeck CofE Primary School today, on the topic of ‘Engineers are Amazing’. Here are some of the video clips used (or I planned to use) during my talk:
“With funding from the Engineering Professors’ Council, I’ve made some films to share the genius of Engineering featuring engineering researchers, lecturers, students and apprentices on film talking about their particular area of engineering and explaining some of the science behind it. The films are aimed at children aged around 9 – 13 but adults may learn something too 🙂“

Great video from the IET:
