The James Dyson Foundation is dedicated to encouraging young people to think differently, make mistakes, invent and realize their engineering potential.
The James Dyson Foundation has donated $18 million to Imperial College London, to create the Dyson School of Design Engineering. Technology leaders of the future The first new engineering department established at Imperial in two decades, the Dyson School will teach a four year Master of Engineering degree in Design Engineering from October 2015. The curriculum,…
The James Dyson Foundation is back with more hands on engineering challenges. Join us at the Westfield Old Orchard Mall on Saturday, March 21st, as we dive into boat building and airplane design. The fun starts at 10:00am and the event is free. Kids who complete all three challenges will go home with even more…
“My cause is the shortage of engineers. By 2020 the UK will be hamstrung by a shortfall of approximately 470,000.” It is clear to me that the only way to deal with this scarcity is to engage young people at an early age and show them how exciting engineering really is – a job where…
Frustration. It might not seem like a positive trait, but it’s the first step to identifying a problem that needs solving. And problems lead to clever new designs. James Dyson Foundation bursary student Rob Bye spotted an opportunity during his final year at Brunel University.
PhD engineering students can usually be found in labs and workshops – digging deep into problem solving ideas that no one else has dreamt up before. But last week, the James Dyson Foundation PhD students were at Dyson’s headquarters in Malmesbury, UK, exhibiting their trailblazing research to James Dyson and a team of Dyson engineers.
The Festival of Imagination has taken over Selfridges in London until the end of March. The center of the festival is in the basement, transformed by architect Rem Koolhaas into the Imaginarium.
Designed to spark the imagination, it was the perfect spot for the James Dyson Foundation to host a design challenge.
The James Dyson Foundation team recently ventured to the West Coast. An opportunity to provide workshops to students at the renowned Art Center College of Design proved the perfect break from Chicago’s wintery weather. The trip yielded inspirational student designs, paved the way for future collaborations and spurred students to enter the James Dyson Award in 2014.
Heavy rains, a plane without a pilot, and a three-hour flight delay did not stop the James Dyson Foundation from hitting New York City. The two day tour was packed with two workshops at Parsons New School of Design and a workshop at the Cooper-Hewitt Design Center.
