Heber meets the next generation of engineers at local Festomane show
On 15th February, Heber were proud to be part of a show held in our local town of Stroud in Gloucestershire, called Festomane (Festival of Manufacturing and Engineering). Gloucestershire is the 4th most innovative county in the UK, and the show is a celebration of the area’s rich heritage and modern-day strengths in manufacturing and engineering. The event encourages young children to consider a future career in these industries.
Held in the school holidays at Stratford Park Leisure Centre, Heber’s stand at the show boasted an extremely popular Buzz Wire game which had hundreds of children (and even adults!) queuing up for a chance to beat the buzzer, with both winners and losers receiving their own step counter for their efforts in keeping with the venue’s fitness theme.
Wendy Holloway, Heber’s Marketing Executive, said “It was a fantastic show, with a huge crowd and great atmosphere. Marty Jopson from BBC’s The One Show was in attendance and gave some fantastic science demonstrations. It was wonderful to meet so many aspiring young engineers which so much enthusiasm, as well as networking with other local engineering and manufacturing companies, and we are already looking forward to next year’s show.”
