About the author

Caroline Alliston is a professional engineer and technical author with a degree from Cambridge and twenty four years experience in industry. Whilst on a career break to spend more time with her two boys, she started a club at their school to enthuse children about science and engineering. Before long there were more children on the waiting list than in the actual club!

Caroline now spends her time running hugely popular workshops for teachers, pupils, home educated children, holiday clubs, Scout groups etc. Unable to be in three places at once, she has written the 'Technology for Fun' series of books incorporating her favourite and most successful projects, to give even more children the opportunity to have fun making things that really work. In 2017 she published her new book Bulit It! 25 Creative STEM Projects for Budding Engineers.

In 2015 Caroline received the Alastair Graham Bryce award from the IMechE for her "significant contributions inspiring and encouraging children towards a career in engineering". In 2016 she received the Stephenson Award from the Worshipful Company of Engineers for her success in encouraging young people to study engineering.
