Medieval charity uses social media to engage with young engineers

The Rochester Bridge Trust, which was founded in 1399, has launched the Exploring Engineering Facebook page as part of its education initiative aimed at inspiring the younger generation.

The page, which includes posts for young people of all ages, shares a range of activities and learning resources related to engineering.

Trust Education Officer Caroline Chisholm explained: “The Trust may be an ancient charity, but it has always made the most of whatever modern technology is available. Reaching out to young people and their families on social media is a logical way to connect today.

“Facebook is a fun, easy way to communicate and we aim to engage with as many families and young people as possible to help them to realise the potential of engineering – especially bridge building – as a future career.”The Exploring Engineering Facebook page can be found at:
