Primary Engineer Rail Programme

Published 21st March 2024

Fully Funded STEM Project for Primary Schools

An innovative initiative in STEM education, the Primary Engineer Rail Programme, is offering a limited number of fully funded opportunities for primary schools across the UK. With a project value exceeding £1000, this program aims to enhance learning experiences for pupils while developing a deeper understanding of engineering concepts.

The programme provides a unique cross-curricular approach, allowing pupils to engage in hands-on activities centred around building and testing rail models. Participating schools also have the opportunity to interact with engineering professionals both in the classroom and at joint celebratory events.

Tailored for Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes, the programme offers comprehensive support for teachers. Each participating school will receive a free kit for 30 rail project builds, sufficient for 60 children working in pairs. Additionally, teachers will undergo a full day of training to equip them with the necessary skills to effectively deliver the project in class. The training sessions are designed to be highly practical and informative, aiming to enhance teachers' confidence in implementing STEM-based projects.

The culmination of the programme involves a celebration where students can showcase their engineering ability. Selected pupils will have the opportunity to put their skills to the test against peers from other participating schools at a celebratory event.
