Supporting our engineers of the future

07 April, 2020

Why is supporting the Primary Engineer Programme so important to Webtec? Martin Cuthbert, Webtec’s managing director, commented: “Quite simply because it helps us to engage with the engineers of the future.”


He adds that with the decline in the study of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths) subjects this is a great opportunity to work with teachers and pupils to give them a new perspective on careers in engineering and highlighting just how important engineering is to the world in which we all live.

[subhead] ‘The Secondary Engineer Fluid Power Challenge’

Following last year’s success, Webtec is once again supporting the Primary Engineer Programme 2019/20 and reports that it is looking forward to working with secondary schools taking part in ‘The Secondary Engineer Fluid Power Challenge’.

Last year, over 780 pupils from 14 schools in the Cambridge and East Anglia area took part in the Primary Engineer programme giving pupils and teachers the opportunity to work with engineers both in the classroom, out in industry and to compete against like-minded teams from other schools.

As a further testament to the importance of this programme, Webtec will donate all profits made from its recently launched book ‘An Introduction to Practical Hydraulic System Maintenance’, to the Primary Engineer Programmes to support STEM opportunities.

Primary Engineer is a not for profit organisation founded in 2005. It is directly responsible for annually engaging over 60,000 children, 3800 teachers and 900 engineers with its range of programmes enabling a ‘STEM by stealth’ approach to education.
