EngVentures

Learn more about what an engineer is, what they do and how they’re changing the world!

2 April 2019, IET London: Savoy Place

Ticket ballot open
until 21 December
2018

 

Mind-blowing talks!
What does the future look like? Will we ever get to Mars? Can microscopic robots help cure cancer? Is Hyperloop the latest mode of transport?
How will artificial intelligence change the world as we know it? These are just a few of the topics you can expect to hear about, as well as insights and practical information on routes into science and engineering.

  • Inspiring workshops!

    Have you ever wanted to know what it’s like to hack into a submarine, or build your own jet engine, or save a city from a natural disaster with remote controlled robots?

    We have a wide selection of activities for each age group, all designed to showcase just some of the incredible projects and technologies engineers are involved.

  • Technology showcase!

    In between the talks and workshops, students from all age ranges will get the chance to experience our interactive exhibition.

    3D printing, robots, drones, virtual reality— just a handful of technologies that the students will able to interact with and learn more about.

Curiscope
Curiscope

We will be exhibiting the Virtuali-tee which is an AR based app and tshirt that allows the user to view an anatomically correct virtual view of the internal organs.

The tshirt allows the anatomy to be viewed in fully animated 3D and includes a friendly guide, Hans, to provide useful information and facts about how the body functions. The app can also be used with a virtual reality headset to take the experience one step further and explore the human anatomy inside the body.

EPCC will be showcasing the Raspberry Pi based system Wee ARCHIE to demonstrating the underlying principles of supercomputers.

Greenpower
F1 in Schools

The F1 in Schools STEM Challenge uses the high profile, glamorous and high tech world of fast cars and Formula 1 to engage with students, introducing them to Engineering in a compelling and unique educational programme.

The challenge can be used as an education tool or hook to engage students in all STEM subjects. This gives both students and teachers the opportunity to develop key skills such as communication, presenting and team work, while forming the foundation for any career path students choose to follow.

F1 in Schools can be delivered as a standalone project in schools and clubs, or embedded into the curriculum as a full Level 2 qualification using teaching materials mapped to AQA and OCR Qualifications.

FLL
FIRST® LEGO® League

FIRST® LEGO® League is a global science and technology challenge for teams of students, to encourage an interest in real world issues and develop key skills that are crucial for their future careers.

The students work together to explore a given topic and to design, build and program an autonomous LEGO® robot to solve a series of missions.

Greenpower
Greenpower

Greenpower Education Trust believes that the most successful way of sparking an interest in engineering is by providing young people with an engaging real life project.

Our highly successful challenge to design, build and race a single seat electric car uses the excitement of motorsport to inspire students from primary to university level to get into STEM studies whilst also providing valuable soft skills.

NPL
National Physical Laboratory (NPL)

NPL is the UK’s National Measurement Institute with about 1000 staff working on the science of measurement (metrology). We are proud to be significant contributors to the science and engineering enabling the forthcoming international system of measurement units (SI) redefinitions that are set to come into force on 20 May 2019.

Our stand contains dynamic hands-on interactives explaining the new definitions of the kilogram, Kelvin, Ampere and mole that will underpin improved measurement to advance future science and engineering.

Royal Navy
Royal Navy

The Royal Navy is key to the prosperity of Britain and the stability of the high seas. Whether it is protecting our economy, providing humanitarian assistance or preventing conflict, the Royal Navy has always been a deeply technological service, and never more so than today.

The Royal Navy’s STEM vision is to inspire young people to engage in STEM activities and learning, empowering them to achieve their potential and become the talented STEM professionals – including engineers, scientists and technicians – of the future. The Royal Navy will bring a variety of STEM interactives to EngFest to enthuse young people about engineering.

UKAEA
UK Atomic Energy Authority

Is it possible to re-create a star in a lab, and then harness the energy to power the world? UKAEA, the UK’s national fusion laboratory, are working to make this a reality.

Join us on our stand to find out more with games and activities about nuclear fusion – see and manipulate a plasma, play with magnetic fluids and challenge yourself to our robot game!
