Educational not-for-profit organisation Primary Engineer has announced Baxi Heating as a new funding partner for the Primary Engineer Structures and Mechanisms with Basic Electrics Project for schools in the Preston area.
The projects which will be supported by Baxi Heating engineering professionals in the classroom will enable primary pupils to have an inspiring introduction to engineering and develop skills such as visualising, problem finding and creative problem solving, testing and evaluation, improving and adapting along with teamwork and communication skills.
Chris Rochester, UK director at Primary Engineer, said: “This is an exciting time for Preston teachers and pupils as they will have the new Baxi engineering and manufacturing centre on their doorstep and through the partnership with Primary Engineer, they’ll be able to connect with the engineering professionals from Baxi to have a real-world context to their learning. Creative, solutions focused, ingenious people will be needed in this area of engineering to design and implement the technologies we will need now and in the future. Our partnership with Baxi will allow pupils to understand more about engineering and to see it as a potential future for them.”
