SKYLON - Talk, BBQ & Annual Review - 1 Jun 2015
Our season review will be followed by a talk by Dr Robin Davies, Senior Control and Systems Engineer for Reaction Engines Ltd, about the SKYLON launch vehicle and the future of space flight.  The evening will conclude with a barbecue, giving the perfect opportunity to network and socialise with other local engineers.

Glastonbury Site Visit - 14 Jun 2015
IET Bristol will be behind the scenes as Worthy Farm in Pilton is transformed into the venue of the 2015 Glastonbury Festival.

More from past events:
Slides from some of our past lectures are available in the Reviews section of our community, including the networking event on Exploiting Social Media and the CIBSE joint event on Biomass Power Generation.  The Reviews area also lets you leave feedback and tell us what you thought of the events.

Can you help at the RB&W Show?
This year, the Bristol LN will once again be part of the line-up in the Imagineering tent at the Royal Bath & West Show (27-30 May), building LED torches and building and racing K'nex buggies.  Could you help us demonstrate the fun side of Engineering to the young people who visit?

Ideally we would like volunteers who can commit for a whole day (or even several days). You will get time off to go and explore the show, network round the other stands etc. The stand has to be manned from before 09:00 until 18:00 but not everyone needs to be there for the duration.  For those of you who have helped out before, the Imagineering tent will be in a new location on one of the busy cross-lanes that run between the main arenas so we expect to see more people through the tent.

If you are interested, contact Nigel Gunton for further information.  There is a Doodle poll you can use to show your availability.  It is a tiring day but great fun!
