Raytheon UK
A Mission to Mars

The Challenge:

Raytheon UK is a technology and innovation leader specialising in defence, security and other commercial markets around the globe. Each year, Raytheon undertakes a ‘Quadcopter Challenge’ STEM programme for schools, but in 2021, their normal programme of school visits, quarterly and national finals was impossible as a result of the global pandemic.

Strategy and Creative:

With the latest NASA Mars Mission coinciding with the need to move activities on line, Engage was presented with a perfect opportunity to create engaging STEM content for a teenage audience. We scripted and produced a series of short films to promote the Quadcopter Challenge as a ‘Mission to Mars’, engaging teams and schools throughout the competition, climaxing in a national virtual final.
