What’s happened so far in I’m an Engineer this March

Biomedical engineer Daniel Morse in Artificial Body Zone is enjoying talking to school students online.

Students and engineers in March’s I’m an Engineer are in the middle of discussing everything from the skills needed to be an engineer, to robots as the ideal housemates, to bonding over baking, to 3D printing a moon base.

After the first seven days, there’s been:

  • 1,231 school students logging in to three zones:  Artificial Body, Robotics, Ampere
  • 612 questions sent to the 18 engineers by students
  • 526 votes cast by the students to support their favourite engineers

And that’s not to mention the almost uncountable levels of conversation in the 26 live chats that have taken place. See all the engineers and schools taking part here.

Engineers can have fun???!?!? Read Emma’s answer in Ampere Zone.

If all this has got you motivated for some engineering engagement you can get yourself involved in the next I’m an Engineer, taking place 12th–23rd June 2017 using the buttons below:

This March, there’s still much more to come. From 3 pm on Tuesday the pressure cranks up as the first engineer is evicted from each zone, with more 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. Best of luck to all the engineers!
