This free competition, hosted by Primary Engineer and supported by engineers in Scotland, looks to create links between schools and industry by having engineers visit a classroom and chat about themselves and their work in engineering. After the visit, pupils are asked: If you were an engineer in Scotland, what would you do?
The wonderful results have included last year’s winner – a trolley for the elderly, a rotating park bench to ensure dry seats, a magnetic bar code in socks to sort them automatically, etc.
So far, we have had 10,000 pupils register for the competition, so we need all the help we can get to inspire the next generation of engineers.
