Scottish Engineering Leaders Award

This year some of our pupils entered the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award.  Congratulations to Sandy Widdop (P6), Rose Marie Murray (P4) and Christopher Bowerman (P3), their invention designs were shortlisted and went on public display at Barony Hall in Glasgow.

The Primary Engineer Leaders Awards and the Scottish Engineering Leaders Award asks children, pupils and students…

Designed and managed by Primary Engineer Programmes to provide an opportunity for children and pupils to interview engineers about their career paths and motivation, it has evolved into a creative problem solving, literacy and entrepreneurial project which annually involves over 23,800 pupils.

As pupil’s interview engineers and research engineering in general they are encouraged to look at the world around them to find problems an engineered solution could solve. Alongside their annotated drawings an accompanying letter is required to persuade engineers to choose their design to build. Links to The University of Strathclyde, The University of Southampton, Manchester Metropolitan University and UCL annually see these pupil’s dreams realised.

Every entry is graded by engineers and educationalists, all entries receive named certificates, shortlisted entries form part of regional public exhibitions and winners are presented Trophies.

One thought on “Scottish Engineering Leaders Award”

  1. ZXY Protection Drone

    My invention design was the ZXY Protection Drone. I wanted to invent this because it keeps you safe and other things to for example if a robber is in your house it will turn invisible. It has a security camera and can be used for keeping robbers away from your property. If the drone senses a robber it locks the doors and calls the Police. An intruder alarm will be sounded and a spotlight will shine on the robber. If I was an inventor for the day I would invent this!
