As part of our ongoing partnership with Primary Engineer, CMT are delighted to support RAF100 which is taking place between Wednesday 29th August and Sunday 2nd September at the Glasgow Science Centre.

The event itself will see a display of aircraft through the ages, from First World War planes to present day to mark the centenary of the RAF. Visitors will be able to see the Sopwith Snipe, iconic Spitfire, Harrier ‘jump jet’ and the latest F35 Lightning, complete with crews in the uniform of each period who will be there to answer questions.

Alongside this fantastic aircraft display, there will be lots of additional activities throughout GSC that we hope will inspire the next generation of Scientists, Technologists, Engineers and Mathematicians.

Primary Engineer will be there to showcase some of the prototypes that have been developed over the years, inventions that have come from the minds of primary school children to solve everyday problems!

And as part of their Scottish Engineering Leaders Award, children will be invited to sit down and and answer the question:  “If you were an engineer what would you do?” CMT Training Officer Liam Turbet will be part of the Primary Engineer team posing these questions and helping the children to develop and present their ideas…which might become this year’s winner and new prototype!

The Primary Engineer workshops will be on every day of the event, 10am – 4pm Wed-Fri and 10am – 5pm Sat & Sun.  We look forward to being inspired!
