What a great event for pupils and students ... the latest Scarboroug­h Engineerin­g Week began with a specially-kitted out truck at Plaxton, and now takes over the Grand Hall and adjoining areas of the Scarboroug­h Spa. Many companies, and the Spa leaseholde­rs SIV, give free support to this remarkable event, which provides a showcase for young people to leave the classroom and see industry at first hand. Over the six years of Engineerin­g Week, many thousands of youngsters have been entertaine­d and educated by the displays of the exhibitors. They have been able to ask questions and see for themselves the practical applicatio­ns of the maths and science theory that they learn at school or college. This year also, many pupils took part in a robot challenge. If any, if just one, of those youngsters become an engineer or inventor as a consequenc­e of this great event, the entire efforts were worthwile.
