Lecturer Biography (Please click): Dr Mark Ogden

Preparation or Pre-Reading: We recommend that students consider some questions in advance relevant to the subject matter and their particular interests in possible further study of engineering.

The IT Setup: The setup is similar to Skype, using a pc and webcam, although students take part as a group with the image projected on a whiteboard rather than as individuals in front of lots of pcs. Dedicated videoconferencing equipment is also compatible if available to the school. We will work with your IT department to ensure everything is set up and working prior to the event. The sessions are generally limited to 4 or 5 schools to maintain the interactive nature of the experience.

Booking a Place: If you have a group of students that you would like to take part in this event, please contact us via email or via the contact form at the top right of this webpage (or at the bottom if on a mobile device). Subject to availability we will book a place for you. These sessions are free to schools and colleges to attend.
