Faculty bring your child to work day
The Faculty of Engineering hosts an annual 'Bring your child to work day' where staff bring their children in for a day of scientific discovery. Departments in the Faculty come together with the Science Museum to deliver interactive and engaging educational sessions for children and their parents and guardians.
2018's event saw the day start with the Science Museum demonstrating a selection of their favourite demos - including rockets, instant ice creams and earth-shaking bangs - followed by the Bubble Show, where participants looked at bubbles and the impact certain materials can have on them.
Further sessions were provided by a number of other departments, including Design Engineering, Computing, Earth Science & Engineering, Aeronautics, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering. From making paper aeroplanes and driving robots, to hunting for fossils and building new structures.
The event provides something for all curious minds!
