The Scottish Engineering Special Leaders Award (SESLA) is one of the Primary Engineer programmes that is coordinated in Scotland from the Scottish Engineering office in Glasgow.
The fourth edition of the SESLA has been the most popular and most successful to date. This year, 8500 pupils from 130 schools sent in their amazing inventions. It was then the unenviable task of the judges to grade the entries, select those inventions they believed should be shortlisted and, in the final stage, choose two winners per year group. Our judges – drawn from academia, business and professional institutions – met at Scottish Engineering to choose numerous inventions that they considered should be Highly Commended, as well as two illustrations per participating school, to be put on display alongside the winning entries. It was truly an arduous job.
The winning entries were presented with their trophies in the University of Strathclyde’s Barony Hall on Thursday 9th June 2016.
Scottish Engineering is delighted to be a supporter of Primary Engineer, and a huge thank you must also go to those other Primary Engineer’s supporters: The University of Strathclyde and the Faculty of Engineering; Doosan Babcock and The Institution of Mechanical Engineers. Our thanks are also extended to all of the Scottish Engineering member companies, whose engineers kindly gave of their time to visit schools and inspire such a high level of creativity and innovation amongst the children.
Other Primary Engineer programmes include: Early Years Engineer, Primary Engineer, Secondary Engineer, The Institution of Primary Engineers, The Institution of Secondary Engineers and the Masters Level course ‘Engineering STEM Learning. Many thanks to all the Scottish Engineering member companies who help them in their work.
