Bookable Activities For Schools

We welcome the opportunity to work with schools to help promote STEM subjects and in particular Engineering.

For 2015-16, in conjunction with the School of Engineering we are delighted to offer bookable presentations and workshops for schools that can take place at the school or at the University of Warwick campus. These sessions can be tailored for a range of different ages and we can suggest appropriate sessions for groups of secondary and primary school children.

These activities are offered free of charge to local primary and secondary schools between November 2015 and Easter 2016. The sessions are student led, normally taking place on Wednesday afternoons. Other times maybe possible but Wednesday afternoons will be prioritised.

The Warwick Engineering Society and Engineers Without Borders have a range of Engineering and STEM related outreach sessions. Final year group projects also offer activities and presentations linked to their project. The groups expected to take part this coming year are Warwick Racing, Warwick Sub, Biomedical Engineering, Warwick Mobile Robotics, Warwick RickSure

There are a range of workshops and presentations on different themes, including:

  • Mechanical Engineering: Racing Vehicles, Marble Runs
  • Technology Sessions: 3D printing, Software & Control
  • Sustainable and Renewable Technologies
  • Engineering Structures
  • Biomedical Engineering

Activities normally last around 1 hour, however this can be tailored to fit with school timetables, shortening or lengthening the time to fit. Sessions can be repeated if required. There is also the option to bring a group of pupils to Warwick for a workshop.

Please fill in the booking form, giving as much information about your requirements and area of interest, and the date you require. We will get back in touch to confirm booking and finalise details.
