What is Engineers Without Borders Bath?
We have a vision.
A world where people everywhere have equal access to the benefits of engineering.
Engineers Without Borders is a tight-knit community of individuals who are driven to make a positive impact on the world through innovation in fields such as engineering, design, electronics etc. as well as being part of a large network of chapters around the world with the same vision. Of course, we welcome members from any and all backgrounds- you don't have to be an engineer to join EWB! Students from every STEM and non-STEM discipline are wanted here.
Globally responsible innovation is about recognising that we are all citizens of one planet and that our actions affect the lives of others. It is about consistently applying social and environmental considerations wherever we are and it is about using innovative solutions as a catalyst to significantly alter the world around us and the way we live our lives. This can be done by promoting high-class, sustainable engineering all over the world.
With our Outreach Programme, we regularly visit local schools to inspire the next generation and show young people how they can be part of the solution by engaging with STEM and being more globally responsible citizens.
Our members become ambassadors for STEM and the society as they join us in running fun workshops in local classrooms and at science fairs. They develop new skills and confidence while helping to make a difference to young people’s lives.
Events & Socials
Take part in lively discussions and design challenges, make new friends at socials and gain a new perspective in our talks from guest speakers. Every year we run a variety of STEM talks and workshops to teach members new skills and introduce them to engaging STEM topics. These events are all friendly to both experts and engineering novices and often involve collaboration with other Bath STEM societies and EWB branches from across the country.
We also run a number of trips. In summer, our committee attended the long Global Grand Challenges Summit 2019 in London, engaging with a variety of senior industry figures and leading accademics on topics surrounding the future impact of technology. Later this year is our annual trip to the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) in Wales and there are more in the pipeline- stay tuned here and on our facebook page to stay up to date on upcoming events.
Workshops & Projects
Learn new practical skills, work in teams and solve problems through challenges and branch projects that help the local community.
