The exciting Imagineering Fair returns with a fantastic line-up of organisations, with some new names and new activities, all bringing scores of free fun engineering and technology activities specially developed for children.
Packed full with mind-blowing displays and activities, there is something for everyone with opportunities to see behind some of the fascinating technology used in modern manufacturing, energy and defence that affects our everyday lives.
Simulators, mechanical challenges and hands-on electronics, there are all kinds of things to make and do. There is plenty to keep youngsters of all ages and abilities occupied for hours – and adults will be fascinated too! Most of the action takes place undercover so is weatherproof.
In the Imagineering Clubs Workshops youngsters can go one-to-one with an engineer, learn how to use tools and make a working model they can take home. Members of the Children’s’ University will be able to get their own special CU ‘passports’ stamped at on the UWE/IET stand. And young visitors should look out for some special characters!
Outside the marquee visitors can see a life size model of the BLOODHOUND SSC (Super Sonic Car) jet and rocket powered racing car in its own orange inflatable tunnel and try out the BLOODHOUND Driving Experience in the marquee.
The Imagineering Fair is organised by the Imagineering Foundation, an education charity encouraging young people to consider engineering as a future career by capturing their enthusiasm at a young age, particularly through fun hands-on activities undertaken in weekly Imagineering Clubs.
The Imagineering Fair is supported by Bath College, BLOODHOUND SSC, BMT Defence Services, Bridgwater & Taunton College, EDF Energy, EDT, GE Aviation, GE Oil & Gas, Imagineering Clubs & Workshops, IET, Leonardo, Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers (REME), Rolls-Royce, Thales UK, University of West of England, Weston-super-Mare College, West of England Children’s University and Yeovil College – and the Royal Bath & West Show. (at time of going to press).
The Imagineering Fair is located on the corner of Avenue D and 10th Avenue.
