Event to inspire next generation of young engineers

The next generation of engineers and scientists can be inspired at an event at Belper’s leisure centre next week.

During a day of hands-on and fun activities children aged between seven and 11 will be able to gain a varied insight into the industries with the help of professionals and graduates.

The session is being staged by Supernova Events Ltd - a not-for profit group who run the events around their day jobs.

Organiser, Bryan Wyse, said: “We set up this social enterprise as we feel there is a continuing need to inspire the next generation of scientists to study these subjects further.

“In addition to this, as we have all varied roles and career pathways, the different aspects of science in the activities will give children a broad insight into the different areas of science and engineering.

“We are focusing our delivery of this event for a child between the ages of seven and 11 which we believe is a vital point to spark theirinterest in science.

“It also allows us to deliver events which will be of the appropriate standard of science that aligns with Key Stage two.”

Among the types of engineering youngsters will be able to find out more about on the day are: marine, chemical, electrical, mechanical, environmental and astronautical.

The sessions will be held on April 8 and 9 at at the leisure centre from 9am – 5pm and cost £25 per day.
