Primary Engineer Construction Programme

The Primary Engineer® Construction project provides both KS1/P2-3 and KS2/P4-7 teachers and pupils with creative, practical projects using construction engineering as the vehicle.


We work with industry partners who enable us to offer professional development for two teachers, full kit for their classes and digital teaching resources to provide a fun, exciting and engaging STEM based project for pupils. This includes a celebration event and places engineering in the classroom whilst meeting curriculum requirements.  

The one, full-day training event is offered to teachers is highly practical and informative, resulting in an increased confidence in delivering this whole class project, enthusing your learners and linking you to practicing engineering professionals. Models made on the course will act as exemplar resources in the classroom. 

The programme will enable your learners to use and apply cognitive and practical skills developed in maths, science, design and technology and literacy through an engineering theme. This cross-curricular, project-based learning approach supports pupils/learners to design, build and test their own vehicles. 

The Primary Engineer Construction Programme will enable you to deliver a whole-class, curriculum-mapped engineering project and be partnered with a locally based professional engineer to support the classroom delivery and provide context for the project where possible.
