Description

Inspire the Next Generation

In order to encourage engagement with young people and inspire the next generation, we are inviting you to come along to learn how to run fun engineering activities for children. 

Participants will make their own electric fan boats and balloon buggies. The projects are designed to tie in with the school curriculum (D&T, electricity, forces and materials) and to provide a fun, engaging, design and build experience. Visit Caroline's website to find out more: www.technologyforfun.co.uk

The lecture is aimed at helping participants to understand public audiences and events, select suitable activities and plan out their engagement opportunities.
