There are two bootcamp sessions currently available. Starting on Monday 27 May 2024. It is completely free thanks to support from the Mayor of London and HM Government.

Here's what some of our bootcamp graduates had to say

"It was really interesting to learn more about the different materials and structures of PV cells. I really enjoyed the labs where we got to speak to current PhD students, see some of their projects and the machines, and ask them questions."
"Teaching was excellent - both Ben and Henrique made the content and lessons very engaging. The topic was interesting and felt like a good mix of things this week between labs, lectures, group work. The data lesson I quite enjoyed but I can imagine it's a marmite lesson. The workshop rooms upstairs in the Hub are a great space."
