Essex-based Gibbons Engineering Group are gearing up for a visit from local school children this summer.

Celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year, Gibbons are looking ahead to their next 50 years in business and are keen to inspire the future generation of engineers.

The huge number of exciting opportunities available to young people pursuing a career in engineering aren’t always widely known, and not enough young people – especially girls – are considering a career in engineering when they think about their futures.

As proud partners to the government-led Year of Engineering last year, Gibbons took part in a number of activities to highlight what an exciting and varied career the industry can offer. As part of their efforts, they hosted an open day for local school children, which was a great success. They are therefore delighted to be repeating the day once again this year.

School children can look forward to a tour of Gibbons’ offices and workshops, and some hands-on engineering activities to take part in, which will give them a taste of the challenging and varied career available to them in the industry.
