Year of Engineering

The Year of Engineering is a UK government campaign which celebrates the world and wonder of engineering during 2018. From spaceships to ice skates, the bubbles in chocolate bars to life saving cancer treatment, engineering touches every part of our lives. However, not enough young people – especially young girls – think it’s a world for them. As a result, the industry is struggling to recruit future talent. What’s more, young people are missing out on the chance to make a positive difference to both their futures, that of the planet and everything that calls it home.

From garage workshop to BBC's Dragons' Den

The locally created novel product Pedaldish has just been featured on UK television, winning investment from discerning Dragon Deborah Meaden. With the prototype made in his garage, inventor Pete Hill will talk about the core features of innovative product design, the challenges associated with taking risks, and some thoughts about making career decisions. He'll also explore how 3D printing is enabling budding inventors to design and redesign.

Pete Hill invented the stained-glass bus shelter in 2008; a vandal resistant design which transforms bus shelters into works of art. He founded his own company Petvictus in 2016 to supply new products to the high street based on a range of homemade inventions he uses in his daily life.  His inventions, "Pedaldish - The Lunchbox for Pets" and "Katfone - The Ultrasonic Whistle for Cats", won investment in BBC's Dragons' Den in 2018. He is currently lecturing on innovation and design to new inventors and entrepreneurs offering insight and advice on their business journeys. Pete lives in Worcestershire, where he continues to design and invent new products.
