Think UTC is a national day that celebrates the work University Technical Colleges do to inspire young people to become the scientists, engineers, technologists and innovators of the future.

This year it will take place on Friday 17 March.

Coinciding with British Science Week, UTCs across the country will open their doors to the whole community, inviting everyone to get involved. People will be able to join workshops, open days and talks on all aspects of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
