Imagineering returns with an exciting line-up of organisations, with new companies and a host of new activities, all bringing scores of free fun engineering and technology activities specially developed for children. Packed full with mind-blowing displays and STEM activities, (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) there is something for everyone. There are opportunities to see behind the scenes and learn about the fascinating technology used in modern manufacturing, energy and defence that affects our everyday lives – and keeps our utilities working, ships afloat and planes in the air.

Simulators, robots, mechanical challenges and hands-on electronics are just a few of the 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!

Imagineering is located on the corner of Avenue D and 10th Avenue.


Try out the Imagineering Experience and sign up for a Workshop where youngsters can go one-to-one with an engineer, learn how to use tools and make a working model they can take home. And visitors should look out for fun outside the marquee too with various demonstrations and challenges.

Young visitors will also get a special ‘Passport’ to fill with stamps and stickers as they go round the stands and complete the activities, giving them a chance to enter a Grand Draw for a £100 prize.

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.
