Ingenious Project Engineers volunteered to stage a three day Engineering Fair at M Shed Museum in Bristol. The event aimed to test collaborative working between schools, museum, engineering volunteers and businesses. The shared objective was to promote engineering past, present and future, so that children see local engineering history as part of their identity and engineering as something that opens up opportunities for their future. Activities were linked for younger participants through the use of an 'Engineering-Jobs Top-Trump card game designed for the M Shed museum.
