Please describe the case in detail

In particular please consider (a)Objectives of the intervention; (b) Tools used to achieve the project goals; (c) Methodologies applied;

Project “100 steps in engineering” is promotional activity to introduce the young people to engineering world. It is dedicated to 100th anniversary of Republic of Estonia. TTK UAS celebrated its 100th anniversary in November 2015, here we come to do 100 steps and the celebrate Republic of Estonia's 100th birthday in 2018. We invite to visit our UAS 100 classis, young people aged 6-19 years. We invite to participate in this project engineers/entrepreneurs, also. Starting in October 2015, we have promoted engineering world approximately to 1,000 child.
TTK UAS introduces this fascinating engineering project to hundreds of young people coming from basic and secondary schools, also from vocational training centers. In this context, workshops and laboratory visits take place at the university. Last academic year the main event of the project was the 4th of November competition for the construction of the Rube Goldberg machine in the Tallinn Culture Centre.
It is possible to visit the following workshops and laboratories:
• Future Construction, Composition and Virtual Reality" (Visiting to the Baltics's only Virtual Reality Lab).
• Formula Student (automotive laboratory and production development)
• “What is architecture?"
• “Logistics, You?" The goal of the workshop is to develop young people' understanding of what the logistics specialist do and what opportunities the WoW offers.
• “Water as the Most Important Resource". The water journey from nature to our households will be introduced and the main processes of wastewater treatment will be observed.
• “Environment and Chemistry" The significance of natural resources is explained in order to understand and use important environmental knowledge, to clarify the energy potential contained in waste, to see an important resource in it, to assess the risks of contamination to humans.
• "Drive safely". The participants in the workshop will have an increased understanding of traffic and the dangers that lie there; young people understand the methods of ensuring road safety and are aware of which intervention options are in place to ensure safe traffic.
• Visiting the industrial automation and electrical engineering laboratories.

What resources are required for the case?

Consider human resources, financial resources, infrastructure, in-kind resources and any other type required.

The resources that are needed in this project are mostly:
1.Active and motivated staff with great mission to introduce young people to the engineering world
2.Financial support of TTK UAS, also the time for teachers to take part in this project
3.Modern labs and other facilities (learning environment) to show it and have a place to organize the workshops
4.Support from basic and secondary schools and vocational training centres to organize visits to UAS and encourage young people to take part in.
5. Financial and moral support from sponsors (coming from world of work, especially from engineering sector) to carry out some special events as Rube Goldberg machine building competition.

What are the enabling factors making this case successful?

Consider institutional support, environmental/social/political factors, etc.

The factors making this case successful are:
1.Collaboration of active and hard working teachers/project leaders
2.Good co-operation with partners ( basic and secondary schools, vocational training centres, sponsors), financial and moral support
3.Modern learning environment (laboratories, designing and simulation softwares etc) to make engineering world interesting for young people.

Why do you consider this case to be good/best practice?

Please consider that a best practice must (a) have a clearly defined objective to increase the connection with the World of Work, (b) address the target groups of the project, (c) be replicable and sustainable, (d) have clearly demonstrated evidence of effectiveness in increasing the connection with the World of Work

We considered this case to be best practice because it is good example of staffs`activity to introduce engineering world (on e of UAS mission), very practical form of collaboration of UAS with basic and secondary schools, vocational training centres and world of work to provide sustainability in engineering education.
