Engineer ‘n’ Our Lives

This week we are participating in a fully funded Engineer’n’ Our Lives weeklong programme themed around everyday engineering. 

The programme is facilitated by Live Wire Productions and Techfest. Industry professional volunteers will be invited to spend part of two days in school supporting this programme, talking to children about their work and answering questions, reviewing the children’s engineering challenge work and supporting our final day engineering celebration event. 

The aim of the programme is to help children appreciate that the skills they learn and develop in primary school are used by professional engineers in the workplace today and to make children aware of different career opportunities within engineering.
