The Airbus Foundation Discovery Space has partnered with Government for its 2018 ‘Year of Engineering’ campaign.


The campaign launched on 15th January and, to celebrate, we’ll be welcoming different groups in to explore the Discovery Space in Stevenage.

The Year of Engineering gives young people, parents and teachers the opportunity to learn more about engineering, as hundreds of businesses will be offering engineering experiences and introducing role models in the industry.  It was launched to inspire the next generation of engineers and encourage young people to consider joining the industry in the future.

We’ll be starting off the week with our monthly under fives’ session, where childcare students from North Hertfordshire College help prepare and teach young children alongside our team at the Discovery Space.  They’ll be able to explore the interactive exhibits and take part in a choice of fun STEM activities.

Then we’re delighted to host students from Bedford Girls’ School who will be learning more about the different elements of STEM through a range of our activities, such as Mars Mission Robotics, Elastic Band Rockets and the Airbus Observation Station.
