Gatwick launches schools programme to inspire young engineers

The programme will involve 15 primary schools and five local secondary schools near to Gatwick and - as part of their continued professional development – the teachers will be offered opportunities to learn new techniques that bring engineering-related projects to life in the classroom and in the school curriculum. Engineers from Gatwick will also visit the schools and arrange airport tours to build interest and connections between local young people and engineers in the field. To deliver the programme, Gatwick is partnering with Primary Engineer and Secondary Engineer – a not for profit educational organisation that aims to improve primary and secondary school pupils’ skills, awareness of engineering and potential career pathways through teacher training, whole class projects and provides a mechanism for close collaboration with pupils, educators, industry and parents.
