Of course, whilst we had a great time answering questions, as with any mission, there was an end goal. Who knows if we will ever be able to jump buildings in one bound or have the strength of the Incredible Hulk, but it will be engineers and scientists who go on to create and design our world for the better. With the current engineering skills shortage in the UK, there is an urgent need to get more young people, particularly girls, interested in engineering and technology and showcase the exciting range of creative engineering jobs. We expect that an engineering career will become ever more diverse, varied and exciting, changing much more over time than has been traditional – which will be hugely rewarding. I’d encourage any parent or young person to visit the IET’s Engineer a Better world or the Tomorrow’s Engineers websites to find out more. Engineers assemble!
