SMEE was formed in 1898 to allow model engineers to exchange experiences and ideas for their mutual benefit.
The Society has developed a number of courses to help both members and those new to the hobby to learn new skills, work safely and gain confidence with the use of their equipment.

Talk: Magnificent Women and Their Revolutionary Machines
Henrietta will talk about her recent book, Magnificent Women and their Revolutionary Machines (Unbound, 2019), published to mark the centenary of the Women’s Engineering Society. The society was founded in 1919 by Katharine and Rachel Parsons, wife and daughter of Charles Parsons, inventor of the compound steam turbine. Magnificent Women tells the stories of the Parsons duo and a host of other pioneering female engineers.
Henrietta’s earlier books include William Armstrong: Magician of the North and a National Trust guide to Cragside, Northumberland.
