Young Engineers

Young Engineers is a charitable organisation that aims to stimulate interest, appreciation and engagement in the practical application of engineering by young people in primary and secondary education. It enables volunteer teachers and their supporters to provide exciting, challenging and creative activities that enrich the STEM curriculum whilst recognising the constraints of available resources.

The organisation supports a network of over 1,500 Young Engineer Clubs, runs four national engineering competitions: the K'Nex Challenge (primary schools), the Airbus Challenge (primary and secondary schools), The Royal Navy Challenge (secondary) and the BAA Challenge (secondary) and organises and hosts the annual Young Engineer for Britain Competition. Membership of the network and participation in events and activities is free.
