Each year thousands of visitors enjoy hundreds of STEM activities developed and laid on by some of the UK’s major manufacturers, engineering organisations and education establishments. Visitors can learn at first hand about the importance of modern engineering in our everyday life and how things are designed and made. There are opportunities for close-up, hands-on inspection of some breath-taking engineering and technology used in production and defence not normally seen by the public. Youngsters are able to meet young engineers who have successfully chosen the engineering and technology career path.
