Imagineering is supporting the Year of Engineering, the Government’s campaign providing opportunities for young people, their parents and teachers to take a closer look at engineering, with hundreds of partners offering opportunities to come face to face with engineering experiences and role models.
To enthuse and nurture young engineers of the future.
The Imagineering Foundation organises several IMAGINEERING FAIRS. This year they are featured at the Royal Bath & West Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset 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.

The practical engineering tasks provided to capture the imagination of the young people visiting the 2005 Bath & West Imagineering Fair were nothing less than inspirational and clearly stimulated an interest in engineering in all its forms.
