 If you were an engineer in Burnley, what would you do?I

We had three  winners at the  Primary Engineer Leader Awards ceremony -Jemima and Nicole from Year 3 and Zara from Year 6. Our pupils  from Year 3 and Year 6 met with an engineer, Bill Tiplady, and then had to think of a problem and solve it using engineering to design a product. They had to devise, illustrate and annotate their solutions and include a ‘Pitch Letter’ to engineers explaining why they should build their invention. We were so proud when we found out they had won trophies in the competition! A quote from Bill's email is below.

Meeting the children at Wheatley Lane has been a great experience for me. To listen to the children’s questions, ideas and imagination was a delight, I would love to engage with yourselves and other schools again in the future.
I travel a great deal with my job and work with many organisations who are on a journey of continuous improvement. To know that I was able to inspire the next generation of Engineers has really enthused me.  
Thank you again for allowing me to spend time with Engineers of the future, they are a credit to your school.
Well done again Wheatley Lane!
