The whole school where massively enthused during their morning assembly, as the Leaders Award Competition, and the 7 volunteer Engineers from local businesses, were introduced to Lauren Nightingale, causing a lot of excitement. From Reception to year 6, every child was brimming with ideas and couldn’t wait to get started!
Our Volunteer Engineers split up following assembly to join the classes for an interview, followed by a question and answer session. The engineers spent the rest of the day encouraging the children to realise their fantastic designs, doing their best to go into all classes, allowing each to engage with a variety of engineers from differing disciplines.
With the prospect of further online interviews on the horizon, the children were ready to solve the problems of the world! When it was time to leave, our budding future engineers were continuing to improve their designs and began the prospect of writing their letters provide the rationale behind their ideas and how they could have an impact.
Thank you again, to the whole school. From Staff to the youngest pupil, we were welcomed with open arms and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
‘Since the event, there has been lots of encouraging feedback from both children and members of staff. Everybody had a fantastic day and thoroughly enjoyed completing the with yourselves and the brilliant team of engineers that supported us on the day! I was lucky enough to spend the day organising support where needed, and managed to speak to lots of children. The ideas that I saw were truly innovative and, in some cases, wonderfully imaginative – a credit to everyone involved!’ Nick Grimshaw, Engineering Lead Stoneyholme Primary School
