Our interactive Engineering Workshop aims to make students consider engineering as a career choice by getting them involved in exciting, hands-on team challenges. This fun workshop is suitable for all students and includes some robotics.
The programme begins by introducing key engineering concepts using quick-fire activities and quizzes. Then the students apply what they’ve learnt in practical terms. For the rest of the day, each team will use their design skills to respond to a series of engineering briefs followed by the chance to test and modify what they’ve constructed.
• Analytical thinking
• Communicating complex ideas within their team
• Attention to detail and precision
• Making decisions as a team
• Applying knowledge in practical terms
Depending on the size of your venue, this event can be delivered as a full day with an entire year group or a half day repeated. We also offer a carousel-style event using multiple classrooms.
According to the Women’s Engineering Society, only 11% of the engineering workforce is female. We like to dispel the misconception that engineering is exclusively a career for men by showing many examples of female engineers. This programme can provide a great platform for teachers to encourage female students to consider a career in STEM.
• All of the resources and printed materials required to run the event
• Highly experienced staff to lead the event
• Prizes to add to the excitement!
Your school will receive a comprehensive evaluation of the learning experience, based on student and staff feedback.
I remember ‘Plan, Do, Review’. This was fun day, I liked the variety. I didn’t think I would enjoy this day but it was actually really interesting.
Good insight into engineering. Our students seemed to really enjoy the day. Lots of content delivered in a fun way. I liked the resources and that they were not sat in the chairs all day. Some surprises where students that are normally difficult to engage, really got stuck in.
