Share your company's engineering expertise to get primary pupils into STEM subjects. 

Primary Engineer is a not-for-profit organisation that encourages children to use and develop their interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

It offers practical, whole class activities to inspire children to aspire to careers as designers and makers.

It's STEM by stealth - practically applying mathematics and science to design and make activities.


Your business and your staff can help

Working together with schools and young people, engineers have the opportunity to make a significant impact on a generation's perception of the industry.

Primary Engineer has developed a structure by which companies can engage with schools on a number of levels which best suit the business and its local and national requirements, including time, resources and training.

It will promote your business and helps your employees to develop new skills outside the day-to-day of the workplace.

"The Primary Engineer initiative has given Spirit employees an opportunity to help children understand how STEM subjects relate to engineering and inspire them to become engineers. As well as a rewarding experience for employees, it also gives them an opportunity to develop skills over and above their daily job requirements, whilst raising the profile of the company."
Scott McLarty, VP, Spirit AeroSystems UK and Malaysia
