Kingston University is hosting this year's London Leaders Award Grading Day. Last year thousands of pupils entered the Primary Engineer & Secondary Engineer Leaders Award and this year we are expecting even more! We are inviting engineers to join us to help grade the entries at what promises to be an inspirational event.
In this, the Year of Engineering, Year of Young People and RAF 100, we are expecting even more entries for the London Leaders Award than last year! As the ideas and thoughts of children between the ages of 4 - 18 are inspirational, thoughtful, insightful and frequently hilarious we are inviting the engineering community to help us grade this year's entries. As a small incentive, limited edition badges will be offered to those who help, and certificates provided to recognise your contribution.
Pupils are invited to interview an engineer, look for a problem and draw a solution to it. Entries include letters explaining why their solution should be built and our engineering students here at Kingston University will build one! The programme has always been about engineers inspiring children but anyone who had been involved with the Leaders Award will tell you – children are also inspiring engineers.
That engineers read the entries is hugely inspirational to those taking part, these events will help demonstrate just how much engineers care about the engagement of young people with engineering. Come join us on 30 April, where engineers can read and grade competition entries. If you have an hour or a day we would sincerely appreciate your time. If you can attend for longer than 1 hour please just select the time you will arrive when you register.
Parking will be limited on site so please plan your travel in advance. For further information visit www.leadersaward.com or call 01282 417333.
