Calder Valley MP Craig Whittaker has launched the We Made It! competition.
Working with local schools and businesses to help young people appreciate the exciting opportunities that a career in engineering can offer and understand that manufacturing is about design and creativity as well as hands-on making of products.
The competition invites 11-14-year-olds to submit their design for a product, gadget, gizmo, toy or tool they would like to see made into a real-life prototype.
Craig is also asking local business to help judge the entries to choose the student who will represent the Calder Valley in the national competition rounds. To find out more pupils can visit the competition’s website: www.wemadeituk.co.uk
