Royal Academy of Engineering lends its powerful support to Educating Ruby campaign

Rhys Morgan explains why he wants schools to change towards enquiry-led teaching

In 2014 the Royal Academy of Engineering published Thinking like an Engineer: implications for the education system. It called for a different approach to teaching so that more children might be switched on to engineering.

Now Dr Rhys Morgan, its Director of Engineering and Education, explains why he is backing the initiative:

'Ruby could so easily become an engineer. Or at least she might decide to opt for engineering if her school offers her the kinds of problem-based and enquiry-led curriculum advocated by Bill Lucas and Guy Claxton. I am delighted to lend our support to this important campaign.'
