Engineers Week workshops for Primary Students

Electricity Workshops are back at BCO!

A week of exciting hands-on workshops, exploring electricity, for primary school children during Engineers Week 2024. Workshops are aimed at 4th, 5th and 6th class and will introduce children to engineering using specially designed electronic kits. The format will be a mixture of learning about the basics of electricity and building their own electric circuits. The visits will include a planetarium show.

These activities are designed to engage children to explore Engineering and Science, by inspiring them with space and astronomy.  Pupils will be guided through the visit using a mixture of skills including creativity, problem solving, teamwork and experimentation, all of which are key to what engineers do.

As a bonus, students will use their newfound circuit knowledge to look at light pollution issues and how they can be combatted. This workshop is part of the CLiC-PoLiT project.
