What people have to say.

“I’ve been involved in promoting science and engineering to the next generations for the past twenty years since graduating in mechanical engineering. I have rarely come across an event which so elegantly educates and inspires young people about what it is to be an engineer. I was genuinely shocked by the quantity of ideas the participants were able to produce.”
