Engineers Week - 7th to 10th March

Engineers Week is back and it starts here on Tuesday 7th March till Friday 10th March.  We will be running 2 sessions per day, starting at 9.45am and 11.15am.  The sessions will last an hour.

The 10 challenges are aimed at 2nd-5th classes, so do bring your students along to build structures, test gravity and grab a few bonus question points along the way!

NB:  If you can’t make it to us then take a look at some of the activities to do in school or at home on our Teacher Resources page.

Commercial language schools do not qualify for free admission, and are admitted at the student rate. Call or email for more information and to book a visit.
