The Rogers Knight Award has been created by Primary Engineer in partnership with the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) to recognise engineers who, working with teachers through the Primary Engineer Programmes, are inspiring pupils to consider a future in the industry.

Rogers Knight lived to the age of 99 and was an engineer who, throughout his life, inspired everyone he met. He was a President of the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS), amongst many other achievements, and it is they who wanted to celebrate his inspirational life. The Primary Engineer Rogers Knight Award was established in 2015, with the first award presented in November 2016.

Teachers and pupils are invited to nominate the engineer who has supported our work in schools, identifying why they should receive recognition.

How do you feel about winning the Primary Engineer Rogers Knight Award?

"It was quite a shock at first because I didn't know I'd been put forward, but once I realised, I was really pleased for the school and for the kids, because it was for the kids really. The whole thing is all about the children."
