Primary Engineer is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2005. Our aim is to encourage young people to consider careers in STEM related professions.
We believe that Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are key subjects in securing positive opportunities and career paths for future generations, and that this begins in Primary school.
'STEM by stealth' was coined by a teacher after attending a Primary Engineer course. It summarises our work exactly: practically applying Mathematics and Science to design and make activities, leaving both children and teachers inspired. Our work is supported by industry, education and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers
Our Vision Our vision is that children, both girls and boys, will aspire to become designers and makers from a very early age. The engineers of the future.
What do Primary Engineer offer? We offer Primary schools a way to deliver practical Mathematics and Science to Design Technology activities. The class projects are aimed at each year group, mapped to the curriculum, and designed to inspire and enthuse. Programmes include teacher training, interactive and paper-based resources, and regional and national competitions. All projects are linked to practicing engineers to provide a real-world context to the project. Find out more

The Scottish Energy Association have partnered Primary Engineer to inspire children with engineering and towards engineering careers. Chief Executive, Hector Grant praised the Primary Engineer programmes for “firing the imagination of our future workforce”. Mr Grant continued by saying, “The Scottish Energy Association is delighted to support Primary Engineer with it’s school programmes. We know that as a country we are struggling to ensure that we have enough people to fill the roles within the STEM categories and our members across the energy supply chain are also finding it difficult to fill professional roles particularly in engineering. The Primary Engineer programmes work to inspire interest in STEM subjects has to be applauded” Find out more!
