HE Experience Day Workshops
Below are a list of workshops that can be delivered as part of an HE Experience Day.
Please note that certain sessions may be limited based on number of students and year groups in attendance.
These workshops are designed to introduce students to applications of engineering and to promote problem solving and teamwork.
