ICE & SNOW trip gets the next generation thinking

Date:

14 JANUARY 2013

December saw civil engineers and young people gather for an inspiring week of skiing and engineering challenges and the best snow conditions in the Alps for 60 years.

As well as providing fun on the slopes, ICE & SNOW helps under-19s to develop an appreciation and understanding of engineering; to build on their team working skills and to apply their knowledge to practical situations.

A recently introduced highlight is the ‘Geochache’ treasure hunt on skis using GPS trackers. The challenge helps to teach future engineers about the technology of the industry while also being one of the most popular activities.
