I'm really interested in computer science and the Saturday Club has helped me to focus on this as something I'd like to pursue later on.

Science&Engineering

Science&Engineering Saturday Clubs introduce young people to the latest industry thinking and technologies, encouraging them to develop practical and analytical skills and giving them the confidence to pursue future study and career opportunities.

Science and engineering impact on every area of life, and it is vital that the scientists and engineers of the future can think creatively to solve the problems and tackle the challenges that the world faces. People trained in these fields are also highly employable in other industries, where numerical and problem-solving skills are invaluable.

What will you learn?

The first Science&Engineering Saturday Club focused on the theme ‘a journey into space’. Since then, Clubs have looked at robotics, broadcast engineering, renewable energy, and wellbeing and nutrition. Each year-long programme includes demonstrations and hands-on investigations, as well as workshops and Masterclasses with prominent professionals working in the sciences and engineering.

Did you know?

A career in science and engineering could mean working at the cutting edge of the latest technology and research, in an area like aerospace, environmental preservation, software development or sports biomechanics. Both industries are vital to the future UK’s success: engineering contributes billions to our economy and Life Sciences create half a million jobs.
