Miriam Cristofoletti made such an impression when she inspired 1600 children in her Leaders Award presentation in December that she was invited back, delivering another presentation on 22nd January.
Miriam, a student at the Bristol Robotics Laboratory, presented to 1021 pupils from 12 primary schools across the country. She’s also made a video for the Leaders Award Meet an Engineer series on the Primary Engineer YouTube channel as is part of a team of UWE Bristol engineers turning one of last year’s Leaders Award winning designs into reality.
The Leaders Award is supported by UWE Bristol and asks children “If you were an engineer, what would you do?”. This free competition asks students to find a problem, invent a solution, draw it, explain and send it in. Pupils are encouraged to both interview engineers and watch the online interviews. If you’d like to take part in the Leaders Award as an engineer or school, please get in touch with the team.
