This weekend sees the launch of this yearâs Spark Engineering Festival in Lincolnshire, and with organizers claiming that the three-day event is set to boost the imagination of young people from around the region we look at what you can expect when the festival kicks off on Friday!
Spark Engineering Festival takes place at Lincoln Cathedral from 5th to 7th May, and the festival is set to provide the perfect opportunity for locals to discover more about the innovation taking place around the city according to Siemensâ entry level talent coordinator Sarah Ellis. Ellis has claimed that the event will provide the chance to inspire people to take an interest in engineering and maybe even consider it as a future career, so what is on at the Spark Engineering Festival?
The theme of the third Spark festival to be held in Lincoln will be âBack to the Futureâ, and visitors will have the opportunity to take a look at a replica of Doc Brownâs Delorean time machine based on the popular movie franchise, which is owned by local celebrity Jason Bradbury. There will be talks and demonstrations held regarding cutting edge technologies and world-beating products within the manufacturing and engineering sectors, and so much more that will be of interest to the masses.
This yearâs Spark will include a whole host of exciting displays and activities that will make a wonderful day out for the whole family, commented Paul Taylor, the Chairman of the festival. Although educational, the event has an extremely fun element that is sure to ignite visitorsâ imagination.
We canât wait for this yearâs event, and weâre not only looking forward to seeing many people there, but also discovering who is Lincolnshireâs stand-out engineer or inventor. Our region has such a rich history and it will be wonderful to celebrate this during Spark.
