Penrose Engineering Residential

What is the Penrose Engineering Residential?

Thursday 5th – Friday 6th July 2018

A free 2 day residential event for Year 11 female students on the Loughborough campus.

This residential aims to raise interest and knowledge of engineering subjects and careers  through a team project and a series of academic workshops and talks. The students will work in small groups, supported by our Student Ambassadors to develop a presentation linked to an engineering challenge of sending a robot to a different planet. During the event, the students will participate in a variety of academic talks and workshops which help them to develop solutions for the issues that would arise in visiting a new planet.

The students will also take part in activities to give them a sense of what life might be like at a University; they will stay in a university Hall on our campus and eat in our dining rooms.
