What is Secondary Engineer?
Not everyone wants to be an engineer, but we do want their skillset: problem-solvers, good maths and science skills, practical, great team-workers, communicators and entrepreneurs. We want to embed these skills and open pupils’ eyes to the world of opportunities on their doorstep.
Secondary Engineer has developed a series of cross-curricular projects to stretch and develop pupils’ skills, knowledge and understanding. Teachers from maths, English, science, design and technology backgrounds are invited to attend a cross-curricular training day. We will aim to link you to an engineer or you can invite a local engineer you would like to be involved with the project, at no additional cost.
Challenges ensue from the whole class/year group activities. For a full range of courses, including Masterclasses for Primary transition, Fluid Power Challenge, Aero Challenge and the Institution of Secondary Engineers, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Secondary project designed to build on the primary experience where hydraulic mechanisms are constructed and combined into a machine to move objects from one position and deposit them in another.
Engineering is all around us. It provides the infrastructure to our lives: it keeps us well and looks after us when we are not; it enables us to communicate and share ideas. The Leaders Award offers the opportunity to look at the world in a global sense or at a very small part of it, find a problem and create a solution. All entries receive a certificate. Shortlisted entries are exhibited and awards made to the best from each year group.
Our vision: is to bring engineering into the heart of schools, enabling a greater understanding of engineering in the world today and to help prepare the engineers of future generations.
