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, 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.

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.

I view involvement of National Grid staff as Imagineering Club tutors as a great development opportunity for our young people
