The Metre Zone was a general engineering zone funded by the Science Foundation Discover programme. It featured engineers from a mix of different backgrounds, such as IT systems, biomedical engineering and civil engineering. Questions in ASK and discussions in live chat were focused on the personal experiences of the engineers and questions about their current roles and projects, such as medical devices and sanitation.
The zone was the largest so far in I’m an Engineer Ireland, with students from 16 schools submitting nearly 650 questions. The final two engineers, Martin and Nicola, contributed 75% of the total answers and live chat content. Martin was particularly good in live chats, attending 11 of the 13 sessions
