ENL Limited were proud to be part of the Enstruct range of educational products at the Big Bang Fair 2012. As reported by the BBC, “Three massive halls in Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre were roaring with excited children, exploding exhibits and scientists and engineers buzzing with answers.” The three-day Fair attracted 56,000 visitors almost doubling last year’s impressive numbers.
Through a collaboration with Winchester College Head of Design Technology, Simon Tarrant, and educational supplier, Rapid, ENL Limited have brought to market a construction set that enables people of all ages to have fun whilst learn about structures and forces – how to make things stand up!
On display at the Big Bang Fair, was a full-size racing car chassis built from Enstruct parts and a selection of tubes and connectors for visitors to the show to try out on the stand. From robots to aeroplanes, the future engineers and scientists visiting the stand demonstrated that, with a bit of imagination and teamwork, it is possible to build exciting life-size structures with Enstruct.
Saturday, the final day of the show, was probably the busiest, with around 300 people visiting the Enstruct stand. Interest came from primary school teachers through to University lecturers, as well as parents’ and their very excited children. The show was a success as orders for Enstruct starter kits have been placed with Rapid (the exclusive distributor) since exhibiting.
Other PR events are planned to raise awareness of this new product, designed to transform the learning of science and engineering in schools and to be used for team building activities at universities, engineering firms and architectural practices.
