Event description

In this workshop with Sarah Vaughan and colleagues, students will explore the history of forces, transport and motion through a series of interactive design challenges.

From the fundamental forces of motion, to travel in land, sea and air, this day will be full of hands on engineering challenges.

Please note

This workshop is strictly for 13–15 year-olds and will include a 45 minute supervised lunch break. Students will not be able to leave the building at lunch time unless permission is given at the time of booking. Students should bring lunch and a drink, pens and pencils.

This workshop is based on an Ri Engineering Science Masterclass. Students who have attended a Masterclass series which included a session on a similar topic may have already seen some of the content in this workshop. Please contact us on summerschools@ri.ac.uk with any questions.

Refunds can only be issued for tickets cancelled at least two weeks (fourteen calendar days) in advance of the event date. Please note that this supersedes our normal event terms and conditions.
