The Wiltshire Festival of Engineering aims to help build a stronger manufacturing and engineering economy to serve the local community. I hope that by enthusing young people from an early age, we will inspire them to develop an interest in science, manufacturing and engineering so that they might consider it as an exciting, rewarding career.
Aimed at local school pupils in Years 6, 7, 8 and 9, the Festival took place on Wednesday 28th September 2016 at Chippenham’s Olympiad Leisure Centre. Hundreds of local young people attended and hopefully many were inspired by some of the fantastic businesses that we have locally.
“The Festival of Engineering is not a silver bullet, but I hope that it can grow to become a valuable resource for career education and inspiration in the region.”
