Welcome to Ingenuity and Beyond – an exciting new initiative from UTC Leeds designed to enthuse our students, stakeholders and supporters alike and give just a taste of what we’re doing here in the City.
This school year (2017-18) we have 3 cool events, Rockets, Robots and Racing, to challenge and inspire you!
Our first event, Rockets, launches on the 27th November and we are excited to welcome representatives from ISU, ARES, NASA, CERN, STFC, speakers from many of our Universities, ground-breaking workshops and a stellar appearance from Tim Gregory, a recent finalist in BBC’s Astronauts, a proper Yorkshire lad (he’s from Dewsbury) and a true inspiration.
We’re having a special Mars Day, student-designed rocket launching if it’s not too windy!, a Cosmodome, some really cool activities and workshops and a real live ROCKET in our carpark during the week – be sure to look out for the signs and keep checking the website so you won’t miss out on anything. You won’t miss the rocket – it is HUGE!
If you’re already here as a student we hope you have a ball and we’re excited and proud to offer this to you.
Some of the events are open to your families, other schools and the wider community too, so be sure to click through the programme and (very soon) book your ticket!
Your teachers have some fabulous stuff planned in the run-up to the event as well so stand by, get ready and lets have some fun!
