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, launched on the 27th November and was a great success – we were excited to welcome representatives from ISU, ARES, NASA, CERN, STFC, speakers from many of our Universities, ground-breaking workshops and our own Tim Gregory, a recent finalist in BBC’s Astronauts, a proper Yorkshire lad (he’s from Dewsbury) and a true inspiration.
We had a special Mars Day, student-designed rocket launching, a Cosmodome, some really cool activities and workshops and a real live ROCKET in our carpark during the week.
If you’re already here as a student we hope you had a ball and we were excited and proud to offer this to you.
Some of the events were open to families, other schools and the wider community too, and we’ll be building on that outreach and engagement for our next one, Robots, in March 2018
Have a Merry Christmas and see you all next year for phase 2!
