Led by current Imperial students, take a tour of the campus and listen to a presentation introducing Imperial College, student life and the courses on offer at the university.
Make your way to the Design Museum, a world-leading museum on contemporary design and 2018 European Museum of the year.
Explore ‘Designer, Maker, User’, the Design Museum’s flagship exhibition on the evolution of 20 and 21st-century contemporary design. Explore the roles of designer, manufacturer and user, as well as the part they play in in architecture, engineering, digital technology, fashion and graphics.
Leave the Design Museum and head to a start-up location.
Enjoy lunch in a start-up shared lunch space before this afternoon’s activities.
Listen up as a start-up tells you about why technology is crucial for their company. They’ll tell you about starting up their business and how engineering and tech skills are vital to thrive in the start-up environment. Have some questions prepped for the Q&A segment too!
Example start-up firms include Code Kingdom, an educational coding-gaming platform, digital products start-up, 3vil Genius, and insurtech start-up, Marshmallow.
After a day full of activities and learning, it’s time to head home.
