The big Boston launch; partnering with Boston Borough Council was a fantastic event! This year is the first year the Primary Engineer Programmes have been brought to Boston. We showcased the Structures, Mechanisms and Basic Electrics course which was introduced by Matt Warman, local MP and had a live broadcast of the event on BBC Radio Lincolnshire’s ‘The Scott Dalton Show’.
Held at Metsa Wood, it was a unique and inspiring space where we were joined by local engineers from RAF, MOD, Metsa Wood and Mastenbroek who were all partnered with the schools they will be going in to support in the classroom.
Helen Ratcliffe, a teacher at Swineshead St Mary’s Primary School said, “I found this course inspirational, it’s one of the best courses I have been on and I know I can take it back to school and already have ideas of how to bring this into the curriculum. It will give pupils a purpose for their learning and will hopefully it will inspire them to go into Engineering”
It was great to see the teachers working together and sharing their successes in this session, we had cheers and lots of clapping as their electric vehicles made it to the top of the highest level on the test ramp.
