The Lighthouse Project

One day training course, school kits included, teacher resources and access to celebration events.

KS1/Lower Primary teachers and KS2/Upper Primary Teachers.

This hands on course covers the technical design and build of a model lighthouse and dumper truck, promoting the correct use of tools, materials and basic electrics in their manufacture.

READ MORE

Upper primary level pupils are challenged to build a model lighthouse capable of withstanding simulated environmental forces, all whilst communicating using a wired safety beacon. Lower primary pupils are tasked with building a shoebox dumper truck. This will be capable or transporting and delivering a specified payload, all whilst ensuring its wired safety light remains blinking.

COURSE OUTCOMES

  • Satisfaction in using real engineering knowledge to build effective, efficient designs.
  • Classroom learning on structural form and frame stability.
  • Integrating basic circuitry to create a form of signalling and communication.
  • Creativity encouraged during the design and build phases.

The Primary Engineer Rail Project

One day training course, school kits included, teacher resources and access to celebration events.

This course for teachers focuses on using rail engineering projects as the vehicle for creative, practical, maths, science and literacy. The Primary Engineer Rail Project is a brand new extension to the existing Primary Engineer programmes for both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.

READ MORE

The Primary Engineer Rail Project has a competition element to champion children’s engineering ingenuity and creativity and to provide a forum to celebrate their engineering skills and achievements. Pupil teams from participating schools will attend a national competition run and managed by Primary Engineer Programmes to test their rail vehicles and discuss their work with engineer judges.

Teachers who complete this course will then deliver a whole-class, curriculum-mapped, rail-oriented engineering project, which allows for a variety of outcomes. The project supports practical STEM and gives pupils the opportunity to work with  engineers in the classroom.

COURSE OUTCOMES

  • Develop an awareness of STEM in your classroom.
  • Understand how to use an rail-orientated engineering project to deliver cross-curricular teaching and learning
  • Be able to use gear boxes & pulleys to construct and test two working vehicles
  • Discuss and plan delivery of the whole-class project in school – curriculum areas and learning themes
  • Understand and plan how to work effectively with your engineer

Primary Engineer Leaders Award

Leaders Award Masterclass

Reception/Early Years, KS1/Lower Primary and KS2/Upper Primary teachers

The Leaders Award is a creative problem solving and literacy competition asking children and pupils ‘If you were an engineer what would you do?’ All entries are graded by engineers and certificates issued, selected entries placed in public exhibitions, winners presented at awards evenings and on occasion inventions are made by universities.

READ MORE

This Master Class will share the good practice of teachers who have successfully used the competition within the curriculum to address: creativity, literacy, careers awareness, problems solving which in turn has provided inspiration and raised the self-esteem of children. The course will investigate the project pedagogy, emphasising the curriculum links. It aims to supports teachers in the creative, entrepreneurial processes to support pupils in creating their own solutions to a real world problems.

COURSE OUTCOMES

  • Understand the philosophy and pedagogy underpinning the Leaders Award.
  • How to organise and manage pupils interviewing engineers.
  • Understand the entry process
  • Access to classroom teaching resources and shared practice.
  • Disclaimer: attendance of the course is no guarantee of taking any trophies!
