The purpose of this presentation is to explore some of the myths about engineering that students may have and to inform them about the engineering profession, the role of engineering in society, and the many career options available in the engineering sector.
STEPS encourage volunteers to go to post-primary schools and deliver this presentation. It's about you – what you do, how you got into engineering, and what you like about it. Your enthusiasm for your profession is very important in getting the message across that engineering is an attractive career.
The post-primary presentation is flexible and can be adapted to suit each volunteer. Your presentation should contain all mandatory modules (including the feedback slide) and two optional modules.
Please include all three compulsory modules and select two optional modules
Introduction to engineering - Compulsory
My story - Compulsory
Engineering in action - Optional
Is engineering for you? - Optional
Focus on the future - Optional
