Building engineers of tomorrow

The Smallpeice Trust is all about inspiring and supporting young engineers in the making who are daring enough to imagine. But we can’t do it alone. The engineers of tomorrow need teachers, like you, today who can help unlock their potential. As well as hosting Ignition & Momentum events for young engineers at university campuses, we provide a range of STEM Day and Think Kits to help you bring engineering to life for Year 8 to Year 12 students.
