Budding scientists gave their problem-solving skills a workout at our biggest ever Future Engineers event.
From making music out of code in our Sonic Pi Workshop and creating your own Robot Railway to exploring how signals work in Screwball Signals and talking to real engineers at the Engineering Hub, there was something to inspire all kinds of imaginations in our Future Engineers festival.
events and activities
FUTURE ENGINEERS: SHOW SPACE
An unmissable array of eye-opening live performances, pop-up experiments and sessions with real-life engineers.
The hub gave visitors the opportunity to ask real-life engineers about what they do all day.
In this space, festival visitors explored current research from science, technology, engineering and maths and thought about how these innovations may impact the future of our railways.
An hands-on activity in which participants created their own digital railway using colour as code.
Explore how signals get trains from A to B.
This interactive game asked you to think like a train, with a roll of the dice throwing up problems to solve.
This interactive workshop helped future engineers learn about Morse code with a tiny BBC micro:bit computer.
