£500,000 James Dyson Foundation grant to help young engineers
Budding young engineers have been getting first-hand experience of life on the job during a workshop at a Keynsham secondary school.
Wellsway School is one of five in Bath and north east Somerset getting a share of a half-million pound donation from the James Dyson Foundation.
To mark the occasion, an engineer from the team spent the morning at the school showing off the new equipment which they will be getting in September and challenging the pupils to come up with their own prototypes and ideas.
They were encouraged to sketch, build, test and review machines that solve a problem around the topic of air.

Head of technology Danny Wilkinson has welcomed the collaboration with the Foundation and has said it will enable his staff to be more creative in the way they teach.
