Event Details

Calling all Engineers!


Primary Engineer are delighted to invite you to attend a local training day taking place on Thursday 16th November at AMS Neve, Burnley.


Here at Primary Engineer we provide STEM CPD training to teachers which links practical maths and science to design technology and engineering projects. We see the benefit of linking Engineers like yourself with local primary schools - to not only inspire and educate young people, but also to create future generations of engineers.


* Please note - In order to attend this course you need to be registered as an Engineer with us. REGISTER HERE. At this training event you will be linked with a school and you will be required to attend sessions in school in order to help teachers and pupils to participate. This will count towards the UK required competencies for progression within your chosen institutions, as activities for your CPD.


The course overview is as follows:


Teachers will learn the concepts of game design using SCRATCH programming. The design of sprites, mazes, awards and variables will be highlighted and combined into a working game. During the course teachers will programme using the SCRATCH coding system. They will learn fundamentals of coding using the SCRATCH programming system. this will manifest itself in the design of a maze game with scoring and rewards system. The elements of programming will include variables, inputs and outputs, algorithms. If, then, else conditioning statements sprite design and production to customise the game. Teachers will have the opporutnity to play and evaluate each others efforts at the end of the day. 

We endeavour to have tea, coffee and water available throughout the day, so breaks can be taken as and when needed during the practical sessions. 

We look forward to seeing you on the day!

Primary Engineer

Primary Engineer is a not-for-profit organisation established in 2005. Our aim is to encourage young people to consider careers in STEM related professions.

We believe that Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are key subjects in securing positive opportunities and career paths for future generations, and that this begins in Primary school.

'STEM by stealth' was coined by a teacher after attending a Primary Engineer course. It summarises our work exactly: practically applying Mathematics and Science to design and make activities, leaving both children and teachers inspired. Our work is supported by industry, education and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers.

Please see the information on each event, this will advise you the amount of time and commitment that is needed for each of our projects.
