Cavendish Nuclear is excited to announce that it is taking a lead role in working with Primary Engineer and Warrington Borough Council to deliver the “Primary Engineer Programme” to 30 primary schools in the Warrington area over the next two years.
The Primary Engineer programme provides an engineering curriculum that spans Early Years, Primary, Secondary, through to Further Education. It aims to introduce engineering into the classroom and inspire children from an early age to enable them to consider STEM in future study and as a potential career. The programme delivers teacher training to facilitate classroom practical learning at a grass roots level with the aim of inspiring the next generation of engineers as well as addressing the current diversity imbalance in science and engineering as a whole.
By investing significantly in this programme, Cavendish Nuclear is enabling the roll out of a STEM-based activity over the next two years to 30 primary schools and approximately 1500 children in the Warrington area with the support of Warrington Borough Council. This will include providing the resources nd training required allowing teachers to deliver the activity in their schools. This investment reflects Cavendish Nuclear’s commitment to raising the profile of STEM careers and to developing the next generation of nuclear engineers.
The official launch event took place on Thursday 7th November in Warrington where representatives from the first 17 of 30 local schools selected came together to kick of the programme.
