Primary Engineers Inspired by Douglas

Since being inducted into the Scottish Engineering Hall of Fame, Douglas has visited primary schools around Scotland to talk about his life and experience as an engineer. This has inspired the pupils fortunate enough to meet Douglas, and encouraged them to enter the Primary Engineer Scottish Engineering Special Leaders Award competition. Entrants have to describe what they would do if they were an engineer in Scotland. Here are two successful entries inspired by Douglas's visits.
