Uncover Engineering is a free residential course pilot which will let you discover what it’s like to be an engineer – trying out a subject you're not taught at school.

You’ll take part in hands-on workshops across a range of engineering disciplines. From programming robots to creating and testing packaging for breakable items, you’re sure to find something you’re passionate about.

Staying in Oxford University’s Somerville College and attending classes at the Department of Engineering Science, it’s a peek behind the scenes at student life. Join us for Uncover Engineering and learn to see the world through an engineer’s eyes.

We’re looking for girls who are creative, inventive and curious about the world around them. Does that sound like you? If you’ve got a talent for science and maths, then Uncover Engineering could be for you.

The deadline for applications is 1pm on Friday 31 January 2020.
