Think0nauts, sponsored by Stora Enso is two design teams of youngsters age 7-11 and 12-18 who meet to develop their innovative skills through team activities and challenges. Our activities are designed to train the team to tackle increasingly complex issues, enter national competitions and work with people from industry.
Learners created structures from standard LASER cut cards and designed MDF linking pieces to hold them together. Then, using home made LASER cut construction kits they made stuctures to take a cantilevered weight.

Suffolk based automotive designer Chris Saunders visits to run an activity on car design. "Its amazing that with all the legislation and safety requirements cars don't all look the same!" Chris advises the major car companies on structural design and has been closely involved with the most recent Range Rover models. Our students get to sit in Crhi's car as he explains many of the issues. We then model a car chassis based on what goes where and why.
