Could you design and build a throwing chair for a disabled athlete?  Or adapt a wheelchair to carry a fishing rod?  Could you make a machine to turn the pages of a newspaper for someone with no arms?  The ingenious inventors and engineers at the charity Remap do all this and more.  Interested in joining in?  We are looking for... read more...

The new IET session started on the 1st October and I am proud to have been appointed as your Chairman for 2014/15. I must firstly thank Guy Bertrand, who has retired as Chairman of our Local Network after many years in post, for his commitment and service to IET Kent. Over the past years, our Local Network has had many successes and I want us to build on these so that we can move forward. I would like to see IET Kent as a vibrant organisation with an active membership, strong links with the community at large and in particular our Universities, Colleges and Schools – plus of course with Industry, especially the many SMEs across the County.

We have a firm base to build on in achieving these ambitions. We have a full programme of events planned for 2014/15, comprising seven morning meetings at Bromley of the Retired Members Section and seven evening meetings of the Main Network, including our first ever Jennison Lecture at the University of Kent. Plus, we are running, in conjunction with Kent & Medway STEM, a Family Christmas Lecture. Details of all these activities can be found on this web site and in the Programme Booklet sent to all members.

Last year saw the launch of IET on Campus at the University of Kent, which has enhanced our connections with the students there. I therefore look forward to seeing a similar provision at the University of Greenwich. I also hope that we can work with both Universities to hold a Present Around the World heat in Kent.

Our involvement with the annual “Safety In Action” event is always very welcome by the organisers and is a big success with the hundreds of children attending, as we talk to them about electrical safety in the home. We always welcome new volunteers for this event and will be grateful if you can just give one day to help us.

The IET can only survive with its Volunteers and I therefore close by asking each of you to consider what you can do to support our Local Network here in Kent
