Year 5 took part in a series of lessons around I’m an Engineer Get Me out of Here! (MT also were lucky to take part as there was an extra open Q&A at the same time as their computing session.)
This is an online event where school students meet and interact with engineers. It’s an X Factor-style competition between engineers, where the students are the judges.
Students challenge the engineers over fast-paced online live CHATs. They ASK the engineers anything they want, and VOTE for their favourite engineer to win a prize of £500 to communicate their work with the public.
It linked to their topic of the Industrial Revolution and the work of engineers now. We were given the health zone and you can read more here: http://healthj16.imanengineer.org.uk/
