March 2019 Zones

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here will run for two weeks from Monday 4th – Friday 15th March 2019.

We are running two zones this March, Energy Zone and Space Zone. Read on to find out more about them, or head straight to the application form:

 


Energy Zone

We’ve come a long way since Newton and Kelvin, but making energy work for us is still a hot topic. This zone will include engineers working in a wide range of areas whose work involves energy in some way. From designing and manufacturing renewable energy sources, to developing new materials for batteries, to managing power supplies for particle accelerators, it’s all got potential.

The Energy Zone is supported by STFC.

Space Zone

Look up at night and you will see a whole lot of space out there. With less than 70 years of sending things into space under our belts, the future up above is almost limitless. And space has huge impacts on how we live our lives down here.

In this zone, engineers might be designing spacecraft that map and explore distant planets and stars, helping us understand more about the universe. Or they could be using data from orbiting telescopes to monitor the logging of rainforests. They could even be making sure the satellite that carries your phone signal survives its shaky trip into orbit.

The Space Zone is supported by the UK Space Agency.
