What is EWB University of Warwick?
EWB IS STARTING FRESH
THINK PROJECTS, DESIGN SPRINTS, OUTREACH and of course SOCIALS!!
We're the first society on campus to offer weekly design sprint sessions! The idea is that anyone can come along and get involved in that weeks brief, whether its "How can we stop cheese from going everywhere when grating?" to "How can we design a game controller with as least waste possible?". Each week will be a new theme, with new materials and supplies to get invovled with! Industry level skillls and knowledge will be communicated in each session, helping Engineering students add to their CV!
We'll be running termly projects - but what does that mean? Each term we'll run a small project, with an industry partner, acting as a pro-bono consultancy for our local community! This will involve creating a design, prototyping and building the final product! This will allow you to put a REAL project on your CV!
This year we're expanding our outreach! Our outreach team will be a group of members, like YOU, who either run an engineering workhop, like "How to Build a Wind Turbine" for Y7-10s, or act as mentors for Y11-12. We want to increase the number of females and ethnic minorities entering STEM. We aim to do this by teach younger students what engineering is in a fun and engaging way, and by acting as mentors for older students who may be thinking of pursuing engineering - giving them the confidence and understanding in what the university degree will be like.
Lastly, there will of course be socials! We're a friendly team who will be hosting nights out, circling and everything in between!
If you like the sound of our outreach programme, or being a part of our projects, or just coming along to the socials and design sprints - make sure to join as a member :)
Overall, using our reach as a society, we want to make engineering and design more accessible to everyone, whilst holiding global responibility at the heart of our mission.
We want to act as a platform to educate, connect and build a proactive community.
