Welcome to Casting the Future
Here you can find out about the casting industry – the career of choice for makers, creators and innovators.
We can connect teachers and students with a local foundry to help you find out about the Casting Industry. We can also provide resources to support teaching and learning about the industry, helping you to meet the Gatsby Benchmarks of Good Career Guidance.
Casting in the Classroom
Practical resources and support to help promote casting and showcase the casting process to schools, colleges and universities.
Learn about casting as a high tech and modern manufacturing process, whose roots go back in history. People have been casting since metals were discovered and it’s not going away soon.
We can provide a table-top kit (our Casting the Future Foundry kit) which includes everything needed for your local foundry to demonstrate the casting process.
We can help you use it for project work or as a demonstration tool to teach about manufacturing and engineering in liquid metal for today’s modern world.
