Imagineering team brought hands-on fun to Alexandra Palace

The stand was real busy at times!
Vectric team joined Imagineering with some 3D printing and design
The Plasma Ball was a real draw
Another happy 'engineer' at the Workbench!

The three-day event was an exciting opportunity to demonstrate Imagineering’s work, promote the Clubs initiative - and provide lots of hands-on fun!
Visitor numbers were well up on 2013 - which was badly affected by snow - but 10% on 2012 - great news for the organisers.
The ‘grown-up’ modelmakers amongst the visitors were out in force on Friday but at the weekend scores of youngsters - budding engineers - with Dads, Grandads, Uncles and the occasional Mum - came along to see the fantastic models on display, check out the Robot Wars stand, the flying model displays - and to have a go at all kinds of activities on the Imagineering pitch!
This year there was the Imagineering Workbench, where youngsters could make-and-take a model in a one-to-one session with an Imagineering tutor; the Imagineering demonstration models; Morse Key & Buzzer stations; magnetic fun and challenges; materials challenges; and new this year - a Plasma Ball, demonstrating electromagnetism and conductivity. The Harmonograph was as popular as ever. And joining Imagineering again this year were Michael Denny and his sister Liza with his collection of fabulous Meccano models, which had some heavy attention!
Newcomers this year were Edward and Adam from Vectric Ltd, regular supporters of Imagineering, with some fantastic design and 3D printing, which attracted a lot of attention - and also Bill Bigge with his specially designed and programmable racing robots.
