Bringing a first-class engineering pedigree into your class, plus industry-insight into STEM careers, these design-and-make workshops will help you overcome hurdles we regularly see:
… designs that can be built with minimal tooling.
… help with free consumables and low-cost used parts.
… access to trade-pricing on materials and components.
… loan of specialist tools and equipment.

Future Transport Challenge
Using a real-life case study, students will explore congestion and air-quality in urban areas. Aided by our interactive dashboard they’ll test the impact of travel choices we make, and then produce their own creative solutions for travel in the years ahead. £400 (6-hours) 6 hours = 1 day or 3 x 2-hour sessions
Systems & Processes
Great design is only half the battle… reliable systems and slick processes are hugely important in all industries, not least motorsport. In a series of practical & engaging games students learn to xuse industry-standard process improvement tools and measure the results against the clock. A valuable STEM skill in all areas of work. £160 (2-hours) or £400 (6-hours) 6 hours = 1 day or 3 x 2-hour sessions
Introduction to CAD and 3D Printing
An introduction to 3D CAD and 3D printing using professional 3D design software. Maximum 30 students, although 15-20 is optimum. Certificates of Achievement are provided on completion. £160 (2-hours) or £400 (6-hours) 6 hours = 1 day or 3 x 2-hour sessions
Aspiring CAD Designer
Students receive 8 hours hands-on experience on professional design software. Comprising a series of lessons to model a gearbox, increasing the complexity, and introducing new techniques at each stage. Certificates of Achievement are provided on completion. £480 Extra modules can be added for students who wish to explore this topic in greater depth.
Race Vehicle Design and Build
In this flexible workshop students get a minimum 20-hours help with the design and build of a gravity racer, a human-powered buggy or trike, or a Greenpower 24V car to race in national championships. We’ll help you purchase parts at competitive prices; provide free consumables; lend specialist tools; and support students, staff, and technicians wherever it adds most value. From £1,150 Additional hours will be needed, and costs will be incurred for materials. Call 01825 761890 for details
