As well as the ‘Apprenticeships & Careers Show’ and ‘Engineer Your Future’, Festomane works with local businesses and STEMworks to provide a number of events around the county, all designed to inspire young people to consider engineering as a career.
STEMworks run a number of Computer Controlled workshops in primary schools around the area. Renishaw will often send an engineer along to support the activities that they are running and will then hold a celebration event at Renishaw for all the winning teams of the schools that they have supported. This year the celebration morning consisted of:
A tour of their Innovation centre
Presentations on Renishaw and an Introduction to Engineering
A mini science show by one of our Principal Engineers
Technology Teardown – where students had the opportunity to take apart faulty consumer electronic goods to see how they were designed and put together.
Mini Engineering project – making a magnetic top chaser which the children get to take home!
Presentation of certificates
