Roke's "Next Generation" programme sets out to inspire the next generation of engineers and scientists through direct contact with experts developing exciting new technology. Part of this scheme involved a ‘teach the teachers’ session where teachers from across Hampshire were invited to Roke to be trained in new engineering techniques so these could be passed onto students.
