June 2019 Zones

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here returns this June, for two weeks from Monday 10th-Friday 21st.

We are running two zones this June, a Health Zone and a General Engineering Zone. Read on to find out more, or head straight to the application form:

This June also sees the return of the MRC Festival Zone, where your students can connect with researchers and support staff from the Medical Research Council, and I’m a Scientist UK.

Health Zone

Our body is a little bit like a machine: our bones form a robust structure, which is moved by muscles. Our digestive system is in charge of taking up energy from food and the blood stream delivers it to where it is needed. We even have a very sophisticated waste management system, and all of this machinery is controlled by a central computer: our brain. Engineers in this zone will be applying their design and problem solving skills to biology and medicine to improve healthcare.

The Health Zone is supported by Wellcome.

A General Engineering Zone – The Milliampere Zone

Engineers they aren’t defined by just one field. There are more than Structural Engineers or Mechanical, more than Electrical or Civil. This zone helps students see the breadth of possibilities in engineering. It will include engineers either contributing to the research supported by the Science and Technology Facilities Council or working in partner companies.

The Milliampere Zone is supported by STFC.
