STEM Workshop Booking Request 2019

Following on from the success of previous IMechE Cardbaord Boat Races we are pleased to continue to offer these workshops to prepare young people for this challenge and understand the science behind it whilst engagaing in some challenging engineering and teamwork.
The aim of these workshops is to introduce young people to the principles of bouyancy, forces and boat construction in support of the Primary and Secondary School Science and DT aspects of the National Curriculum. Ultimately provide them with the knowledge, confidence and skills to build a cardboard boat suitable for racing in the 2019 IMechE Cardboard Boat Race on the Barbican, Plymouth on 14th September 2019.
