Primary Engineer Launch at EEF Ltd

8th February 2013 Gateshead

Discover why STEM subjects are at the very heart of developing the next generation of engineers.

Primary Engineer is an initiative aimed at primary school aged children. It is intended to stimulate pupils’ interest in areas of engineering and encourage them to take an inquisitive approach in other STEM subjects.

EEF members in the North East are sponsoring a number of primary schools to help achieve this aim. Through their commitment of financial support and by providing trained technical staff, who will mentor in the class room, members are making a positive contribution to building the next generation of technologically inspired and motivated engineers.

We are giving members the opportunity to join us at the launch of Primary Engineer free of charge, be recognised for their participation in supporting the initiative and share experiences of The Primary Engineer with other attendees.

This event also provides an opportunity to see the Bloodhound Rocket Car - a project that has been designed to facilitate the next generation of Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians.
