YOUNG
ENGINEERS ON
THE STARTING GRID

The green flag is raised on our race to find the Young Engineer of the Year 2024. KMF Community teams, supported by Greenpower, are getting ready to tackle the torque, put the dynamic in aerodynamic and chassis on down to the grid at Mallory Park to see which team will take pole position. This year, we’ve upped the stakes on the #YEOTY2024 competition. Not only are we reaching out to Y10 teams in local high schools, but also to Y6 primary pupils via the Hubb Foundation’s HAF activities.

As the teams design and build their own racing cars, we will be challenging curious minds, inspiring innovation, raising aspirations, encouraging teamwork, and fuelling an interest in engineering careers.

When the chequered flag falls at Mallory Park on the 18th September, the race will not be over. The teams will get the chance to race again in 2025, in a street race, which will transform Stoke town centre.

#YEOTY’S LEGACY

We first clocked on to the idea of having a Young Engineer competition in 2012, and since then we have made electric kit cars, pitched Gadget Show vs. Dragon’s Den, taken selfies in space, created Lego robots, raced electric kit cars, battled robots and challenged classtronauts to experiment in space.

EVERYONE’S A WINNER WITH YEOTY

When we mentor young people, focus their energy, take them out of the classroom and into real-world dynamics, we are aiming to inspire future generations. Since 2012, 65 schools have participated in the Young Engineer of the Year competition, 75 organisations have stepped up as sponsors and supporters and we’ve celebrated 15 category winners. Over £1m has been invested, and every penny has been worthwhile as we’re backing youngsters to believe in themselves, to achieve great things together and know that there’s a bright future ahead of them.

Twelve years on, many of our youngsters have gone on to further education in STEM subjects. Some of our young engineers are building great careers with us, with the sponsor organisations and further afield. That’s a win-win all round.
