Airbus Defence & Space

Stand 17-360


We are delighted to announce that Airbus Defence & Space will be joining the MACH 2022 E&D Zone with their ExoMars Rover, ground demonstration model 'Bruno'. Bruno is the Earth-based testing model for the 'Rosalind Franklin' Rover vehicle, set to blast off to Mars in September 2022 to search for possible signs of life on the planet.

ExoMars will also help to prepare for other robotic missions and possible future human exploration.

You can find out more about the ExoMars and its mission at the AIRBUS WEBSITE.

At MACH The ExoMars will be demonstrating how to navigate the surface of Mars, staff from Airbus will also be on the stand showing how they communicate remotely with the rover and answering questions from young engineers who would like to learn more about engineering in the Air and Space sectors.


17-254 & 17-260

The UWR is a university racing team competing in professional motorsport events including the F3 Cup and AR Motorsport Morgan Challenge.

It is a brilliant way to learn whilst competing and put into practical operation things learnt in theory.

The Team will be showcasing the cars and their skill at MACH with practical demonstartions and tales from the trackside!

You can find out more by visiting the UWR Website

University of Wolverhampton Racing gives students on our engineering courses the chance to learn to be motorsport engineers in a live racing environment. Now you can spend time with the team, learning about single-seater racing with our Formula Renault and our Morgan Plus Four – everything you’ve ever wanted to know about the engineers behind the racing drivers – the ones that make their speed possible. You’ll finish the session by practicing a pit-stop wheel change, just like an F1 pit crew.



Stand 17-354

VEX Robotics

Stand 17-272

VEX Robotics is the world's leading educational robotics company and the only one with significant presence from Early Years, right through every Key Stage and into University - both for classroom use and extra-curricular competitions. To support the use of the products - VEX 123, VEX GO, VEX IQ, VEX EXP and VEX V5 - VEX has a suite of free programming software, free curriculum resources, free teacher CPD and an online Knowledge Base of hundreds of articles. 


The VEX IQ and VEX V5 product lines are also used in two of the world's largest robotics competitions with 10,000s of teams competing in thousands of events every year. The UK National Championships is held in Telford every March, the birthplace of the industrial revolution inspiring the generation living through the fourth industrial revolution. 


At MACH 2022 we will be running workshops using our VEX V5 Workcell Factory Automation solution. Attendees can learn about this 5-axis robot arm, industrial robots, throughput and end effectors and program the Workcell to pick and place. The V5 Workcell replicates the actions of many of the industrial robot arms on show at MACH from the likes of ABB, FANUC and KUKA. 

Experience Industrial Robotics for the Classroom

As you walk around the exhibition at MACH, you will see a wide range of robotics solutions for industrial automation. Robots are used for many different tasks including assembly, picking and packing, sorting, material handling and much more.

VEX Robotics are giving you the chance to experience industrial robotics on a desktop scale, designed specifically for classroom use. The VEX Workcell is a construction system that combines a robotic arm with conveyors, sensors and various actuators that allows students to design, build and program their own industrial automation system.

In this workshop, you will program a VEX Workcell robot arm to detect, collect and move objects of different colours to their correct locations. 


F1 in Schools

Stand 17-50


F1 in Schools is a STEM competition with a difference. Essentially a try-before-you-buy careers experience, students between 9-19 are presented with the chance to work in a close-knit team, where everyone takes on a role to suit their skills. Teams are challenged to create and race their vision of the F1 car of the future, to our official Technical Regulations, set out by a rule committee led by legendary F1 Engineer Gary Anderson. Researching, planning, managing, designing, marketing, manufacturing and promoting themselves, teams around the world work together to reach their local Regional Final, for the chance to compete for a place at their National Final, where an invitation to compete at the hallowed F1 in Schools World Finals is tantalisingly within reach.

If F1 in Schools is new to you, come and find out a little more about who we are and what we do at Stand 17-50. We’re a friendly bunch and a very small team, so you’ll quickly get to know us all. It’s a tough time for schools, teachers, students and education as a whole, but having positive distractions like F1 in Schools is keeping the future of global motorsport motivated, focussed and crucially, passionate about the world they’ll no doubt come to call home in the future.

EDT (Engineering Development Trust)

Stand 17-457

Leave it all on the track – The Great OzoRace!

Start your engines Ozobots, may the best codes win.


The opportunity for you to get hands on by designing a race track with coding – the objective is to get your Ozobots to the end of the track first.

Figure out the codes that work best for speed, draw it out and test your OzoRaceway with Ozobot before the race begins!

EDT (Engineering Development Trust), is a nationwide educational charity who offer young people (9-21 years) active learning experiences in STE(A)M related careers, giving them the opportunity to gain knowledge and exposure that will help them make decisions about their future. Connecting young people, educators, partners and employers across the UK through STE(A)M focused experience days, projects and placements.

All EDT activities are accredited by Industrial Cadet (industry led framework), on completion students will achieve an Industrial Cadets Award that they can showcase on their portfolio explaining their skills and experience acquired during the programme.

We offer experiences designed to raise awareness, and inform young people how STEM is relevant, interesting and leads to a rewarding career. Throughout the experiences, young people have the opportunity to work on hands-on challenges, work towards the nationally recognised Industrial Cadets accreditation whilst interacting with STEM professionals and educators.  We strive to ensure that all young people can access these opportunities and financial support is available for those who need it.  

Come and talk to us on our Stand ( 17-457) find out what opportunities we have for you and join us on our journey to reach 250,000 Industrial Cadets on the way to 1 MILLION! Or find out how your company/schools/young person can get involved.
