The Institute of Imagination continues its programme of events with ‘lab live: reality’ in partnership with Rolls-Royce.  Just us for a fantastic day of activities, brought to you with a range of 25 supporting partners and makers, where participants can explore what ‘reality’ means through design, mechanics, engineering and futuristic exploration.

  • Be amazed at a model of the fantastic Bloodhound SSC (Super Sonic Car) – one of the fastest cars on earth! Brought to you by the team at Rolls-Royce, visitors have the chance to build their own models in the ‘connect challenge’.
  • Experiment with drones and explore aerodynamics using the iOi’s wind tunnel to test fly your own creations.
  • Get creative using 3D computer aided design and then see how your designs can be manufactured with My Mini Factory and Ultimaker 3D printers.
  • Experience augmented and virtual reality with Neutral Digital, through a Microsoft HoloLens which allows you to interact with holograms around you.
  • Immerse yourself in new worlds with Google Expeditions programme.  Explore the surface of Mars, visit the International Space Station or submerge yourself in the beautiful underworld of coral reefs.
