February’s I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! saw over 370 students ask more than 600 questions covering topics from burning lasers to biggest professional fails, and it certainly had an impact on students and engineers alike:
‘Students enthusiasm in the live chats and fantastic questions really made this competition a great event to be part of…. are we allowed to enter again next time???’ – Padraic Morrisey, engineer and winner February 2015
The next I’m a Engineer, Get me out of here! event will run from 9th to 20th November 2015!
Teachers register by Sunday 20th September: imanengineer.ie/teachers
Engineers apply by Sunday 27th September: imanengineer.ie/engineers-apply
We’re still working on the list of zones, which will be announced at the start of the new school year.
The UK version of the event is running now, check it out to get an idea of how it all works.
UPDATE: 01/09/2015 —————————————————————————
We can already confirm we will be running the Meter Zone, a general zone with a broad mix of five engineers working in different fields, thanks to funding from Science Foundation Ireland.
The I’m an Scientist, Get me out of here event will also be running during the same two weeks, read all about it here.
