Epping Forest MP Dame Eleanor Laing met school children who have been recognised for award-winning projects at an event marking LEGO Education's support for the Year of Engineering.

The young engineers were the guests of honour at a special reception at the House of Commons where they showcased their award-winning projects - all inspired by LEGO play.

The students are part of five winning teams in the Engineers of the Future competition, a robotics and coding challenge which inspired children aged seven to 16 across the UK to get hands-on and creative with real engineering projects – like developing ideas for renewable energy or sustainable water systems.

Engineers of the Future has seen the government’s Year of Engineering campaign, LEGO Education and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), join forces to give more children around the country the opportunity to meet engineering role-models and to take part in engaging STEM activities.

The event, hosted by Stephen Metcalfe MP, provided an opportunity for Parliamentarians to consider the central role of engineering to society and the importance of direct early experiences for children in inspiring and developing the engineers of tomorrow.

Dame Eleanor said: "It was great to meet the students and see their award-winning engineering projects. It’s the Year of Engineering and I thank Stephen Metcalfe MP for hosting this event."
