BMT were thrilled to return to the ever-popular Royal Bath & West Show that took place in June.  The four-day Somerset-based event celebrates rural life in Britain and welcomes over 125 food and drink exhibitors and 22,000 visitors a year.

A team from BMT hosted a stand within the Imagineering Fair, which is a dedicated area championed by The Imagineering Foundation, to introduce young people to the world of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) through a series of exciting and hands-on activities.  The team offered visitors to the BMT stand the opportunity to build and test sail boats in a small pool, using hand-held fans to simulate wind, and also provided a submarine buoyancy demonstration using pumps and balloons to simulate ballast tanks.
