I’m an Engineer, Stay at home helps classes and youth groups connect with engineers, their teachers and each other during school closures.
I’m an Engineer is an online activity where school students connect with real engineers. It’s a competition between engineers, where students are the judges.
Students challenge the engineers over fast-paced online live chats. They ask the engineers anything they'd like to know about their project, and vote for their favourite engineer to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
It’s online. It’s interactive. Your whole class can join in. It helps students find new perspectives and new careers, it supports the Science Capital Teaching Approach and taking part increases students’ Science Capital.
