Students will gain hands-on experience of creating, designing, and inventing - learning from engineers who do it every day. We will also help students improve their teamwork, communication and leadership skills whilst developing life skills and building their CV.

This course gives students a glimpse of the jobs they could go on to do after school, and one of the most important benefits we offer is the chance to have their questions answered by engineers and industry experts. If your child has ever wondered what a typical day looks like as an engineer, this is their chance to witness it first-hand.
