The club has been run at Ringwood Junior since 2008 and has provided many boys and girls with the chance of hands-on engineering projects.
Each term, 12 children from Year 6 are given the opportunity to join the club, which runs from 3pm to 4pm on a Wednesday in 6AS. There is a weekly charge of £5 to cover the costs of materials used in club sessions. Children take home finished projects.
The club is very well supported by engineers, mostly retired, who give up their time, voluntarily, to help run the club at school. They also devote time outside school to prepare resources and tools needed during club sessions.
The club has been supported financially by Ringwood Rotary and other local businesses over the years, and we are very grateful to them for their assistance in buying tools, equipment and resources for the club.
