Schools Map

Schools taking part in November’s I’m an Engineer

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here is back! In November students at over 60 schools will be interacting with 22 engineers across 4 different zones.

Between 7th – 18th November school students will put the engineers through their paces in fast-paced live chats and probing questions on everything from motors, to diagnosis equipment and space.

For the latest news and announcements about the event, find us on Twitter, @iaegmooh, and follow the hashtag, #IAEUK.
