Through various engagement programmes, MAPP aims to increase the profile and prestige of manufacturing and engineering throughout the UK.

We believe additive manufacturing and 3D printing has the potential to engage and excite people of all ages.

At the annual Pint of Science, we introduce a wide variety of people to 3D Printing.

MAPP attends a wide range of STEM events and organises secondary school visits and work experience to encourage young people's enthusiasm for advanced powder processes.   Pupils at the MAPP stand at the Get Up to Speed with STEM event

Our investigator Dr Candice Majewski is part of the organising committee for 88 Pianists

Universities around the country worked with local schools to design mechanical fingers which allowed them to beat the world record for most people playing a single piano at the same time.

The world-record was 19 people playing the same piano, but through mechanical finger-extenders, they had one person on each note: 88 Pianists!
