Bahrain Airshow, 15 November 2018 – The Airbus Foundation, in partnership with the Bahrain Ministry of Transportation & Telecommunications (MTT), are holding a series of Airbus Little Engineer Workshops at this year’s Bahrain Airshow.

Around 100 students, aged between 13 and 16, will participate in the workshops held daily at the Airshow’s public area from 14 November until 17 November. The learners will dive into the exciting world of aviation and engineering. During the four-hour sessions, the students will learn to identify the key components that are needed to build an A380 air craft and familiarize themselves with the assembly as well as manufacture processes of the world’s biggest passenger airliner.

The Airbus Little Engineer programme is designed to ignite a passion for technology, with a view to promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) learning.
Following a collaboration agreement with the MTT, more than 250 students have participated in the Airbus Little Engineer workshops held in Bahrain.
