ASIMO to perform at the annual Youth Engineering Show to be held at North East of England

ASIMO returned to the North East of England this week to perform at the annual Youth Engineering Show. The show is a fast moving 85-minute educational event involving presentations, interviews, demonstrations and videos about the world of engineering – as well as a performance of ASIMO itself. Over the three days, it provides an opportunity for around 7,000 year 7 and 8 students (11-14 year olds), to sample first hand the importance of engineering in modern day life and appreciate the range of career options available in this diverse field.

Honda has also supported the event by bringing along a host of examples of its engineering expertise, including Steve Plater’s winning Superbike fresh from the Isle of Man TT, the Team Dynamics British Touring Car Civic and a new Honda Insight hybrid vehicle. A motorcycle apprentice and trainer are also on hand to answer any questions the children have about careers at Honda.
