George Edwards A-Level Engineer

A Level student George Edwards had no idea his engineering concept would change his life forever.

A-level Engineering student George Edwards has more on his plate than just his exams.  While studying in his final year at the Kings School Canterbury he’s taken what started out as a AS-level project and taken it from conception through to a fully functioning manufactured product, winning a number of national design competitions into the bargain and with a list of international companies looking to license and produce the product overseas.

When he’s not campaigning for a greater focus on UK engineering skills, George consults as a product designer for a range of companies and has some other design ideas that he’s developing for the market.

‘Born to Engineer – George Edwards’ is the third film in the series we’ve produced for The ERA Foundation by Duck Rabbit as part of a campaign to attract young people into engineering education and careers.
