I did the one at Greenwich - some years ago.

Its was very good but have your brain in overdrive mode - there's a lot of stuff to take in.

Ideal for a Building Control bod though. Whilst I don't have the skills to drive a CFD model myself, I understand (roughly) how they work and what questions to ask when presented with impressive looking graphics etc etc.
