Event Details

Calling all Engineers!

 

Primary Engineer are delighted to invite you to attend a local training day taking place on Wednesday 15th 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:


A practical course which will involve teachers designing, making and investigating using a variety of materials and techniques. Teachers will gain an understanding of the Early Years Engineer programme to develop early years investigations into STEM and support emergent science and technology learning and develop ways of planning for transition through activities that can be shared between early years and year 1. Gain an understanding of how to extend children’s learning and enhance the STEM inquiries by providing opportunities for children to share their thoughts and ideas for creating further child–led investigation and learning and to develop cross curricular links.

 

During the course teachers will:

Create an ‘Engineering Buddy’ (puppet) as the facilitator for the learning activities. Puppets have been included
as a result of research into the use of puppets to promote engagement and talk in science; children are not only keen to tell their ‘Engineering Buddy’ what they know, but are more motivated to ask or answer questions and join in discussions.




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!

Organiser

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.
