Over the past couple of weeks I have been supporting Primary Engineer with some judging panels of entries to their competition “If You Were An Engineer, What Would You Do?”.

The competition was open to all primary and secondary schools in the UK and this is its 10th year of running.

Judging the entries was a great experience, taking part in three of the panels in the North West. It was interesting to see the unconstrained thinking of the Young People and as the entry levels grew in ages, the more constraints that could be seen and number of entries.

There were some excellent entries looking at innovative solutions to real world problems, but I cant mention any due to the competition rules.

Its great that these types of competitions exist and would encourage schools to get involved with Primary Engineer and their competitions.

Looking forward to seeing their next competitions and activities. Primary Engineer have a Micro:bit set of activities coming and schools can register.
