Engineering is all around us, from the cars we drive in, TV screens we watch to the food we eat. It is what makes our lives liveable and as such forms the basis of discussion, creativity and problem solving. How can we make life better for others and ourselves?
Children, pupils and students in Early Years Settings, Primary and Secondary Schools are invited to interview an engineer, identify a problem, draw and annotate a solution to it on an A4 or A3 sheet and explain on one side of A4 (or less) why their solution should be manufactured by engineers.
All entries receive a named certificate. Shortlisted entries are displayed at regional exhibitions and awards presented to the best from each year group.
We will also be offering a Leaders Award Masterclass helping teachers maximise the programme in the classroom, exploring the curriculum links and expanding the literacy and creative aspects of the programme.
