Into Engineering provides students with resources to help them decide if studying Engineering at University is right for them.
The main part of this is a quiz, developed by current students at the University of Liverpool, with basic questions from a wide variety of Engineering topics. The quiz is aimed to help students understand what studying engineering is really about and for them to self-assess their own knowledge.
As well as the quiz, there are a variety of other resources about what engineering is, what courses are available and future careers in engineering along with links to useful sites recommended by Secondary/Sixth Form students.
Junkbots an in-class activity.

The video shows an array of powerful magnets arranged so that they trap a nearby magnet in a 2D magnetic minimum, allowing you to move that magnet around a flat surface as if you were holding it in your hand.
This could be useful to STEM Ambassadors because the inverter magnet uses the inverse relationship between field strength and distance in electromagnetism to create the 2D minimum mentioned above. This makes the inverter magnet a great visual demonstration of that inverse relationship since it is actually possible to see where small nearby magnets overwhelm the effects of a larger, but also more distant magnet.
The inverter magnet prototype was invented by Owen Miller.
