A project that aims to raise awareness about the positive aspects of engineering for youngsters is taking place in Aberdeen this summer.
Called the Summer of Engineering, the initiative, sponsored by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Aberdeen Section, is being held at the Aberdeen Science Centre until August 31.
There will be a range of activities and educational workshops designed to keep families entertained.
The exhibition hopes to inspire the next generation of innovators to take up a career in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and will cover topics such as slime and rocks.
Liz Hodge, chief executive of the Aberdeen Science Centre, said: “The Aberdeen Science Centre and SPE share a common goal, to engage in promoting the public understanding of STEM.
“For us, the most important thing about engineering is the relevance it has to everyday life and the north of Scotland.
“We can’t wait to engage with children and help them understand how it is used in real life, and of course, have fun in the process.”
