Winner of the Kilogram Zone 🏆

The Kilogram Zone ran for 4 weeks in March 2021 and was funded by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

The Zone featured 30 engineers working across a broad range of fields.

Over the month, students voted for their favourite engineer. At the end of the Zone, the engineer with the most votes was Mike Hinchey. As winner, Mike gets €500 to spend on further public outreach projects.

Here’s what he had to say about being crowned the Kilogram Zone winner…

“I’m really delighted – and extremely surprised – to be chosen as the winner.I hope I’m an Engineer has convinced some students that a career in engineering could be right for them. Even if it didn’t, hopefully it gave a better awareness and appreciation of engineering and how it’s used in so many areas: in everything from entertainment and games, to medical devices and healthcare, through to robotics and space exploration.

Thanks to the moderators for giving some short breaks – the questions came fast and furious. It was a very well-organised event.”
