Burnley engineering educator recognised in New Year’s Honours

05 February, 2019

Burnley-born Susan Scurlock, CEO and founder of Primary Engineer and its wider programmes, has been awarded an MBE in the 2019 New Year’s Honours List for services to Education and Engineering across the UK.

The honour is fitting recognition for Scurlock’s pioneering work that is helping reshape how young people are introduced to the skills needed for a career in engineering.

Incredible journey

Commenting on the announcement, she said, “I’m absolutely thrilled. We’ve been on an incredible journey to this point and in the past year alone we have directly engaged nearly 60,000 children and more than 2000 teachers. Despite our rapid progress, we feel that we are very much at the start of what we can achieve, and our new Institution of Primary Engineers and Institution of Secondary Engineers have the potential to become game changers.

“To be awarded an MBE is a fabulous personal honour and I’d like to thank the hard work and talents of my team and so many professional associates who share my belief in the benefits of engineering skills for children and the future workforce.”

Creativity and inventiveness

Primary Engineer’s programmes range from day-long teacher training courses, a Masters’ Level Postgraduate course, celebration events and an annual competition which asks the question ‘If you were an engineer, what would you do?’. These activities connect schools, universities and engineering organisations who all join forces to showcase that children have the creativity and inventiveness to carve out a career in one of the most rewarding careers on the planet.
