Our Vision and Key Programmes

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 Tomorrow's Engineers 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
