Improving awareness of sciences and engineering in schools
INPUT was created in response to the Science and Technology White Paper ‘Realising Our Potential’ which called for greater attention to the development of the next generation of highly qualified science and technology personnel. The regional network of one-day technology courses presented science and engineering in a challenging way to young people aged 9 to 19. Many INPUT students went on to train with local companies and to take up further or higher education.
