Think UTC 2017

Baker Dearing Educational Trust and UTCs across the country will be celebrating Think UTC day on Friday 17 March. This is a national day where we highlight the amazing work UTCs do to inspire young people to become the scientists, engineers, technologists and innovators of the future.

We would encourage you to help promote Think UTC this Friday on your social media channels. This information provides a handy toolkit with all the information you need for your organisation to take part in Think UTC. The following guide will help you plan your tweets and Facebook posts for Think UTC along with the supplied social media images and lightbulb graphic. Baker Dearing will be monitoring all activities on social media and we look forward to promoting your support of UTCs with our audience.

Here are a few ideas for inspiration:
