Free engineer visits
UPDATE: Registration for primary school visits is currently closed. To be added to a waiting list, register your interest here.
Every year the STEPS team arranges hundreds of free school visits, linking up volunteer engineers with local schools and equipping them with an engaging, interactive presentation about the wonders of engineering. A visit to your classroom by an engineer will meet Step 3 of the criteria for gaining an Award of Science & Maths Excellence from Discover Primary Science and Maths.
The Xperience Engineering project has now ended. Visit this section to review projects from the past few years and to get ideas for classroom-based engineering projects.
