The Engineering Education Scheme in England and Scotland links teams of Year 12 or S5/S6 students and their teacher with local companies to work on real-world scientific, engineering and technological problems.
This video focuses on the scheme's celebration and assessment day, where the teams showed off their completed designs. They also gave a presentation to the assessors. At the end of the event the students were awarded a bronze, silver, gold or platinum award for their efforts.
The scheme is run by The Engineering Development Trust. This not-for-profit organisation administers a number of initiatives designed to engage school pupils in science and engineering, with the aim of encouraging more young people to consider careers in these fields.
