Engineering & Structures Workshop for KS2

This workshop is perfect for your KS2 pupils to learn about engineering, the impact of engineering and to take part in hands-on engineering activities.

The workshop focuses on structures and in particular towers. Pupils learn about how engineers have had to problem solve to adapt to a growing population and the advancement in buildings over time and then apply the concepts to two hands-on engineering challenges.

"The children were completely engaged in the workshop and had the best time creating their structures in small groups with the resources provided to them. A few children commented on the day using words such as 'inspiring' which was really great to hear."
