About the Workshop

This workshop provides an insight into the innovative design side of engineering and technology careers, using various props (e.g. old telephones) as examples of innovation. Teams of students use their creativity to design an innovative product that tackles real world problems, before presenting these ideas to the class.

  • Can be delivered to larger group sizes if needed. 

  • Longer sessions could include making prototypes out of recycled materials.

This is also part of the Engineering Our Future day.
