PEAK Scientific proudly partners with Primary Engineer
PEAK Scientific has partnered with Primary Engineer, who bring engineering into classrooms around the UK with fully-funded programs and competitions to inspire pupils to become engineers in the making. The core aim is to develop children and young people through engagement with engineering.
PEAK’s purpose is “Good beyond profit.” Strive to be a socially responsible employer creating worthwhile jobs and reinvesting profit to local causes in the many countries of operation.
With “Good beyond profit” at the heart of the company, PEAK Scientific is delighted to have become a Scottish partner with Primary Engineer on their Leaders Award Competition which asks pupils aged 3 - 19 'If you were an engineer, what would you do?'. Pupils will be given the opportunity to visit PEAK’s engineering premises to see engineering in action in the real world, they will identify problems, discuss their own solutions, and be offered guidance and support from the PEAK team.
Fraser Dunn, PEAK Scientific’s Head of Design Engineering said, “We are fortunate that within PEAK we have a wide discipline of highly-skilled engineers, putting us in a good place to be able to offer a broad range of information and support to young students. At PEAK we pride ourselves on being a global but local company and it's fantastic to be able to partner with schools in the local area and keep young kids enthusiastic about STEM which is core to the values of PEAK – supporting local communities.”
The program gets students to look at the world around them and find engineering solutions to a common problem. Culminating in an awards night where participants get to see their ideas and solutions come to life; this exciting partnership, now in our second year, will help to inspire and encourage young people into STEM, something PEAK is very proud to be part of.
Rowan Maclean, Head of Partnerships-Scotland with Primary Engineer added " We are so excited that PEAK Scientific is continuing to support the Primary Engineer Leaders Award competition across Scotland this academic year. It is so important to provide real-world context to sectors such as Engineering and showcase some of the incredible Industries and opportunities across the country.”
When schools register on the Leaders Award website, it unlocks access to cross-curricular lesson plans, pupil log-books, guides, and curriculum mappings to help schools teach STEM easily with a flexible approach in the classroom.
