Vehicle Project Registration

Primary Engineer

Vehicle Project

We are supported by regional industry funders to provide professional development for up to two teacherstwo sets of physical classroom resources, digital teaching resources and face to face celebration events in support of placing engineering in the classroom within the curriculum’s requirements

The Vehicle Project will enable you to deliver a whole-class, curriculum-mapped engineering project and be partnered with a professional engineer in the area to work with you on the training day and after with pupils in the classroom.

Based on our original ‘STEM by Stealth’ programme, this project provides children Primary School with the opportunity to engage in exciting practical Maths and Literacy investigations, using engineering as the vehicle.

Kits are sent into the class so children can create a working model and get a hands on experience on what it means to be an engineer.
