Try solving problems faced by real-life engineers and work on fun, real-world projects with like-minded young people from the comfort of your own home. This course is for 12 to 14-year-old students (Years 8/9 or equivalent).

Run over four fun, action-packed half-days, this online course is delivered by an experienced team of Smallpeice youth delivery experts and supervisors. Students will be shown three different areas of engineering they could study at university, covering cyber security, electrical and space engineering. The course also encourages students to get creative and improve their teamwork, communication and leadership skills. All the kit required for the course will be mailed out in advance.

Lateral thinking is a key skill that engineers need to develop, as a big part of their job involves solving complex problems. You will witness this and learn how to develop your own approach to problem-solving by designing and making prototypes.

Alongside hands-on activities, you’ll have talks by engineers who will answer your questions about the realities of working in this dynamic industry and how to overcome the many challenges of a career in engineering.
