Lincoln College presents at the Spark! Engineering Festival 2017
This weekend Lincoln Cathedral played host to the Spark! Engineering Festival 2017. Celebrating the city’s rich engineering heritage.
Lincoln College was represented at the event by both the Engineering & Technology School and the Air & Defence Career College.
Head of Engineering & Technology Derek Howsham said: “All three days of the Spark! Festival were a resounding success. Over 800 school pupils attended on Friday and took part in numerous activities aimed at raising awareness and making engineering exciting.”
“ It is a testament to the event that many pupils returned on the Saturday and Sunday to bring along their parents. Spark! is a celebration of local engineering for all ages and takes its name from the desire to provide the first spark of interest for tomorrow’s engineers.”
Spark Engineering Festival is organised by a collaboration of local organisations, businesses and education establishments aiming to invigorate and inspire young people to enter the world of engineering.
Head of Career Colleges Richard Long said: “Our students who staffed the Chapterhouse Schools Visit area on Friday had great fun engaging local children with a STEM Challenge they had developed specifically for this event. Spark! Festival is a great event that invests in the future.”
