Its your chance to ask the experts anything about engineering whether its biomedical, civil, electrical or mechanical - and to see how you could be part of this story, and become an engineer.

There will be fun games, exciting experiments and interactive shows throughout the day.

Professor Christopher James, is a biomedical engineer and neuroscientist and is organising the event.

James said: I am really excited to be putting together this event to showcase engineering in all its guises. As an engineer, solving problems is what I do in my case in health and wellbeing.

It has been fascinating getting the many stands and tours we are setting up together there will be many things to play with, puzzle over and get excited about. We are aiming this event at children of all ages - from 3 to 103!
