Welcome to IMAGINEERING, administered by the independent education charity, the IMAGINEERING FOUNDATION and staffed by committed volunteers with engineering knowledge. Its aim is to introduce young people of 8-16 years to the exciting world of engineering, science and technology through fun, hands-on activities and personal involvement.

Our Vision

To enthuse and nurture young engineers of the future.

Our Mission

  • To spark the imagination through a positive first experience of Engineering.
  • To inspire enthusiasm towards Engineering by being a helpful role model.
  • To work with other organisations to provide support, guidance and educational material to enable the engineers of the future.
  • To establish collaborative networks, including with our stakeholders, that, from day one will provide clear pathways to a career in engineering.


The Imagineering Foundation organises several IMAGINEERING FAIRS. This year they are featured at the Royal Bath & West Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, the Royal Three Counties Show at Malvern and the International Air Day at RNAS Yeovilton. They have also attended in past years The Royal International Air Tattoo at RAF Fairford near Cirencester attracting over 100,000 visitors each year. See our FAIRS section for further information.


Building on the success of the Fairs and to provide more sustained engagement for young people, the Imagineering Foundation has developed other activities notably IMAGINEERING CLUBS. Voluntary engineers [often retired] work with schools weekly throughout the academic year building models and having fun in the process.

The Foundation works hand-in-hand with professional organisations and companies, and Imagineering dovetails neatly with educational initiatives promoting engineering skills.

Web site

This web site complements these activities, providing on-line information to help Schools, Tutors and Companies get involved with running an Imagineering Club. It also supports volunteer Tutors and Teachers with additional resources and document downloads.
