This video is our tribute to Mr Rube Goldberg, an individual whose drawings inspired the world and earned him a place in the dictionary. But more importantly, this is a tribute to our lesser-known technicians who deliver greatness across the UK.
Technicians are practical. They are the doers who we rely on to craft our world. Each year thousands of people are needed to fill jobs spanning industry, yet many of these roles go unfilled. If we are to build the economy to deliver benefits for society, we need more technicians to help realise big ideas.
Since the early 40’s, Rube Goldberg machines have captivated the masses and have been hailed as the perfect way to inspire people into careers within science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM). We want to inspire the next generation of technicians into STEM and celebrate the doers. Fixers. And go-getters. #TechniciansMakeitHappen
