Over the last week, students and engineers across Ireland have been engaging online in 3 I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here Zones, funded by Science Foundation Ireland and Wellcome Trust.
Together they’ve talked about:
- What makes a good engineer?
- Knowing what to do with your life
- The future for electric cars
- Being mistaken for Jack Sparrow
- The most environmentally unfriendly objects
- Does anyone like Batman?
- Wildest imaginary inventions
- Coronavirus (of course)
And much, much more. See the engineers and schools taking part.
In total, in the first seven days there’s been:
- 613 school students logging in to the 3 Zones
- 348 ASK questions from students sent to the 18 engineers
- 235 votes cast by students for their favourites
- almost uncountable number of conversations in the 24 live chats so far.
If all this has got you wanting a piece of the action, then apply for the next I’m an Engineer. Or, if you’ve taken part already, tell your colleagues to sign up!
This March, there’s still much more to come. From 3pm on Tuesday the pressure starts to mount as the first engineer is evicted from each zone, with another following each day after. Who will survive to stay in the running for the €500 prize?
Find out before anyone else from the announcement in the staffroom each day until the winners are announced this Friday 13 March. Best of luck to all the engineers!
