Loughborough Day

Date: Saturday, 10 November 2012
Time: 9:00AM - 4:30PM

BHI Members are invited to take part in a skill sharing day at Loughborough University on Saturday 10th November. Places are limited, there are just 15 remaining, so you must book as soon as possible if you want to attend.

The BHI is supporting the University with their project ‘Clocks as a Learning Tool’, which aims to get engineering back into secondary schools. PhD student Lewis Jones exhibited at last year’s Summer show, explaining his concept of using laser cutting to manufacture clock parts. He also wrote an article for the Horological Journal on the subject, which appeared in the July 2012 edition.

The day starts at the Wolfson School of Engineering at 9am and runs through to 4.30pm. Cost is £25 per person, including lunch. During the day there will be a tour of workshops and demonstrations, a lecture on the theory of laser cutting with its possibilities and limitations for horology, a talk about the Loughborough project, a questions and answer session and a discussion on how we can help further the project in a practical way.
