Outreach

The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science reaches out to the wider community with a number of activities and individual research projects.

We are committed to highlighting the central role of computer science and electronic engineering in our world and its potential impact on our future. Through our informative and fun events, award-winning online and print magazine, workshops for teachers, demonstrations and activities, we aim to enthuse and engage young people and their teachers. As well as sending researchers to visit schools and colleges, we regularly welcome school students of all ages and their teachers to our campus to participate in our events and to see our unique research and facilities.

Throughout the year we run a series of events aimed at school students, including the First Lego League (January), the IET Faraday Challenge (March) and The Royal Institution masterclasses (August/September). For more events consult our calendar:
