Engineering: Think Inside the Box

A series of interactive cubes, created by the Sheffield Engineering Leadership Academy, each containing representations of a different discipline of engineering.

You’ll experience a virtual reality flight through the solar system, explore the engineering of drains, and try your hand at keyhole surgery. You’ll also have the opportunity to meet Wobbly, a self-balancing robot demonstrating automated control. Along the way, you’ll be guided by our augmented reality assistants, who will give you a personal journey into the world of engineering.
