Enterprise hub Engine Shed launch school Tech Tours
Bristol’s leading enterprise hub, Engine Shed, has launched Tech Tours for school pupils to ignite long-term interest in STEAM subjects, set up in partnership with award-winning technology and business consultancy BJSS and the University of Bristol spin-out haptics firm Ultraleap. Tech Tours offers primary and early secondary schools in the West of England the opportunity to spend a day at Engine Shed and Ultraleap for a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities, including a coding workshop and a visit to Ultraleap’s Experience Room to feel the magic of mid-air haptics and 3D tracking.
Tech Tours is part of Engine Shed’s Diverse Workforce for the Future programme which works with partners to help raise awareness of opportunities for young people and engage them with the workplace. The tours aim to inspire younger children about the diversity of creative and tech jobs in the region and to ignite in them a long-term interest in STEAM subjects to pursue their career goals.
