About Us

Welcome to IMAGINEERING, administered by the independent education charity, the IMAGINEERING FOUNDATION and staffed by committed volunteers with engineering knowledge. Its aim is to introduce young people of 8-16 years to the exciting world of engineering, science and technology through fun, hands-on activities and personal involvement.

The Imagineering Foundation organises several IMAGINEERING FAIRS. This year they featured at the Royal Bath & West Show in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, theInternational Air Day at RNAS Yeovilton and at The Royal Interational Air Tattoo at RAFFairford near Cirencester attracting over 100,000 visitors each year.


Building on the success of the Fairs and to provide more sustained engagement for young people, the Imagineering Foundation has developed other activities notablyIMAGINEERING CLUBS (over 150 to date). Voluntary engineers [often retired] work with schools weekly throughout the academic year building models and having fun in the process.

The Foundation works hand-in-hand with professional organisations and companies, and Imagineering dovetails neatly with educational initiatives promoting engineering skills.


This purpose-built education facility at Gaydon in Warwickshire offers a range of STEM activities for half and full-days. Click on Special Activities to find out more.


This web site complements these activities by providing on-line information to help Schools, Tutors and Companies get involved with running an Imagineering Club as well as servicing the needs of the volunteer Tutors with discussion blogs and document downloads.

We hope that you find this web site useful and look forward to receiving your feedback and participation to further the success of Imagineering in reaching young people. Sign up as a volunteer and join our effort to bring engineering to the next generation.
