If You Were An Engineer, What Would You Do?®

A Primary Engineer® Project

The competition encourages pupils from primary and secondary schools across the UK to look at the world around them and
find engineered solutions to common problems.

As part of the competition pupils interview engineering professionals, identify a problem and design a solution to it enabling them
to be inspired by engineering professionals and ‘find the engineer they could be’ by designing the future of engineering.

In 2018/2019 over 49,000 pupils took part.
In 2019/2020 over 30,000 pupils took part despite schools closing due to Covid-19.
