Showcasing students as they develop their “bright ideas” into commercial products whilst discovering exciting career paths within science.

  • Students translate scientific discoveries into a business idea that requires entrepreneurial thinking
  • Teams pitch their ideas Dragons’ Den style, competing for our coveted Innovation Award
  • Includes visits to research groups like the Impact Engineering Laboratory, the Electronic Power Group and the Materials Testing Facilities
  • Students can ask the experts for careers advice as they tour the site

We expand your students’ perception of career opportunities in science, specifically introducing the idea of entrepreneurship in science and technology, by demonstrating how we turn scientific discoveries and cutting-edge technology into commercial reality.
