Young Engineers Award


The STEPS Young Engineers Award competition encourages 3rd and 4th class pupils and their teachers to explore the world of engineering by developing an engineering project that would help improve their local community.

Schools are encouraged to invite local engineers, or to sign up for a STEPS Volunteer Engineer, to visit their class for a showcase of the projects. The engineers will also give the class an insight into the important role of engineering in the community.
