11:57am Friday 18th October 2013 in News
THE future of Scarborough’s engineering industry has been in the spotlight at a week-long event supported by nearly 30 local businesses.
School pupils from across Ryedale, Scarborough and Whitby have been visiting the town’s Spa for the fourth Scarborough Engineering Week.
Supported by 29 engineering and manufacturing firms, the event was created to inspire youngsters to consider a career in engineering and help the industry develop a sustainable workforce for the future.
Over its four years Scarborough Engineering Week has grown from an attendance of only 400 in its first year to welcoming more than 2,000 youngsters from schools throughout this week.
Peter Wilkinson, who co-founded the event, said: “When we started this four years ago it was a dream, no one could have imagined we we would be where we are now in 2013 on such a big scale.”
