Take part in the Candela Zone

Throughout June 2021, I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here will connect school students with working engineers from across the UK through the engineering-themed Candela Zone.

Teachers: Register to take part ❯


I’m an Engineer is a safe and secure online platform.

It’s quick and easy to set up, and text-based – no audio or video required.

Students get to:

  • Ask working engineers their questions
  • Connect with them through live text-based Chats
  • Vote for their favourite to win £500!

It’s accessible from home or the classroom and super-flexible – you book chats at times that suit you and your classes.

The Candela Zone is funded by the Digital Engineering Technology & Innovation (DETI) programme at the University of the West of England.

Thanks to DETI and our other funders, this activity is completely free for UK state-maintained schools.
