1. Plan your activity

STEPS Engineers Week activities should show off what engineering is to young people. This is the only requirement from STEPS – otherwise the sky is the limit!

 Do you need any activity idea? STEPS has collated a list of activities suitable for secondary school audiences that you might like to carry out. These can be found below.

 If you have another engineering activity in mind, that’s great! Please do feel free to go ahead with your own activity.

 You can carry out the same activity each year, you are under no obligation from STEPS to come up with something new each year.

 Here is a selection of suggested activities and resources that the STEPS team have gathered:

Record your impact

As an activity organiser it is critical for you and your students to evaluate your STEPS Engineers Week experiences, so we can analyse the positive impact of all your hard work.
