Take part in free engineering outreach this November!

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:

If this sounds up your street, you’ll be pleased to hear there is another chance to take part this year:

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 Septemberimanengineer.ie/teachers

Engineers apply by Sunday 27th Septemberimanengineer.ie/engineers-apply

Teachers will get an email in early September asking them to choose their classes’ zones. The event is supported again by Science Foundation Ireland and will coincide with Science Week!

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.


More STEM engagement…

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.
