KMF Young Engineer of the Year 2014

01 February 2014

The KMF Young Engineer of the Year competition is a wonderful opportunity for young, aspirant engineers to gain some valuable knowledge and open doors to potential career opportunities. To achieve this competition, KMF had teamed up with the Greenpower project, an organisation that aims to change current views about engineering, presenting it as a fascinating, relevant and a dynamic career choice for any young person.

The competition pairs organisations, such as Bri-Stor Systems, with high schools located within the Stoke-On-Trent area. The aim of this year's competition (2014) was to design and construct a kit car with the essential components provided by the Greenpower project. Once the base components are established, the candidates are then tasked with designing their own unique kit car to bring to the race track.

Bri-Stor Systems had paired up with a selected group of young candidates from Madely High School. After a few weeks of introductory meetings and design plans, it was straight off to the workshop to put their plans into practice. Soon after, it was time for the races to begin with a guest appearance from Jason Bradbury, offering his support and enthusiasm for the next generation of engineers!

The race day consisted of 2x90 minute races in which the aspiring young candidates had their finished car taken to the track. After some minor hardships in the first race, Madeley High School managed to grasp 3rd place in the second race. A gratifying victory for all the hard work and commitment the candidates had shown throughout.

"It was really rewarding to be able to share Bri-Stor Systems experience and expertise with the next generation of engineers"
