Youngsters are being urged to take up engineering through a new competition.

MP for Carshalton and Wallington Tom Brake launched the We Made It! competition last week which invites 11 -14 year olds to design a product they would like to see made into a real-life prototype.

Businesses will judge the entries and winners will be invited to one of the UK’s Fab Labs to see how the latest technology is used to create products.

The individual winner of the local competition will be invited to Parliament to meet the heads of the manufacturing organisations involved in the project and learn how to take their career further.

Tom Brake said: "The UK desperately needs more young people who aspire to engineering and high-level manufacturing careers and this competition is a great way to help students gain a better understanding of how the manufacturing and engineering industries actually work".
