Public engagement activities
Over 1000 visitors visited the IfM on Saturday 24 March 2012 as part of the university's annual Science Festival. The visitors enjoyed a host of demos, hands on activities and talks. The IfM has taken part in the Science Festival since 2010.
Each year the IfM hosts a visit by school children from the specialist engineering college Chelmer Valley High School, Chelmsford. In July 2012 the party of 14 and 15-year-olds learnt about 'just-in-time' manufacturing, took part in a crane construction challenge and enjoyed a punting trip on the Cam.
