March 2015 Zones

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here will run for two weeks during Bristish Science Week from Monday 9th to Friday 20th March 2015.

With 6 different zones, we’re looking for 30 engineers and have space for more than 2,000 students.

Here is a list of the zones we will be running, or if you want to skip straight to the application, teachers register here:, engineers apply here:

Apprentice Zone

This zone will be for engineers who entered engineering through an apprenticeship. Students will learn about engineering and more in particular about apprenticeships as a career option.

The Communications Zone will look at how information is transferred. It could include a shuttle navigation or satellite software engineer, an underwater cable engineer, or a systems architect stopping hackers infiltrate security systems.
This zone is funded by the Institution of Engineering and Technology.

Health Zone

The Health Zone will look at everything health related. From prosthesis and diagnostic equipment, to sanitation, bio-materials and waste management.
