A new education programme designed to help inspire young people to consider a career in engineering is being launched by LEGO Education, a line specially developed in order to facilitate group learning through the means of construction.
Known as the Elite Engineering Programme (or EEP), the renowned toy manufacturer aims to help youngsters gain an understanding into the basics of engineering via its toy blocks, which have been a perennial favourite with children of all ages since 1949.
The programme is aimed at upper primary/lower secondary school children, and all schools chosen to participate will be provided access to LEGO Mindstorms packs, along with guidance on how to assemble projects.
As an ISO9001 accredited firm and experts in welding and fabrication, Real Engineering (Yorkshire) Ltd. fully supports LEGO’s campaign to encourage children to gain an insight into the world of engineering.
Based in Keighley, Yorkshire, Real Engineering are specialists in providing welding and fabrication services to all manner of different industries across the length and breadth of the UK. Whether it’s a large scale contract or small general repairs, Real Engineering have the expertise to approach any fabrication task with complete ease and professionalism.
As one of the cornerstones of engineering, welding can be considered by some to be an artform – it’s important for a fabrication project to be completed to an incredibly high standard, in order to guarantee durability as well as aesthetics.
With a comprehensive range of fabrication services on offer, Real Engineering is capable of providing bespoke steel and metal-based welding, either on site or in-shop, and is available to undertake all mig welding/tig welding fabrication projects worldwide. Regardless of the size of the job, each project is undertaken to the highest possible standards, and given complete care and attention to ensure projects are delivered on time, on budget and with a professional finish, in order to guarantee 100% customer satisfaction.
Whether you’re based in Yorkshire or further afield, you can find out more about how Real Engineering can make your welding/fabrication projects come to life here.
