Are you an engineer?

To bring engineering to life we aim to link each of our schools with an engineer.
The IET found that pupils believe “school trips to see what engineers do” and “visits from engineers” are the best ways to promote engineering to young people. Additionally, pupils who can recall 5 employer-engagement activities at school were 5 times more likely to be engaged in education, employment or training post-school.
The role engineers play in inspiring, nurturing and developing the next generation of engineers cannot be underestimated.
At Primary Engineer we aim to link schools, where we can, to engineers who could be interviewed about their career, support the delivery of a practical activity in the classroom alongside the teacher, act as judges at events, or form part of the school’s Institution Committee.
The opportunities to engage with schools are varied, to accommodate the amount of time engineers can offer.

What can you do?

If you are a member of a Professional Engineering Institution, or know an engineer who is, and would like to be involved in supporting a school, please register or contact us at engineers@primaryengineer.com for more information. We will invite you to link with a school and attend a training day alongside a teacher. If you have less time available, then we would invite you to be interviewed by pupils, or act as a judge at events.
