The award, funded as part of the Primary Engineer and Secondary Engineer ‘Making it in Burnley’ programme, with Burnley Council and AMS NEVE, links through to the Burnley Bondholders and schools to inspire pupils with the extraordinary careers available to them in Burnley.
The Leaders Award invites pupils from Primary and Secondary schools in Burnley to be inspired by an engineer from an industry in their own town! They can then apply an engineer’s eye to the world and identify problems in need of solving. When they have settled on their idea, they draw and annotate it, making clear what the problem is and their unique solution to it.
The deadline is the 29th March 2017. All entries we receive will be awarded certificates, some will achieve Merits and Distinctions. A panel chooses two great ideas from each year group. These winners are presented with awards as part of a private show and awards day, followed by a public exhibition (date and venue to be confirmed). For more information contact the firstname.lastname@example.org or register your school here.
Primary Engineer and the Leaders Award extend their thanks to the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Siemens and many Burnley industries for their support. The aim is to inspire pupils with the extraordinary careers available to them in the region, meet engineers and understand their career paths and motivation.
