The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) represents civil engineers around the world.
To combat the skills shortage within the UK engineering industry, ICE North East are looking to inspire the next generation of civil engineers.
The UK needs innovative ideas to attract engineers from all areas of society to ensure a diverse workforce fit to tackle challenges such as climate change, population growth, building bigger and taller buildings and providing clean water and sanitation for all.
The Inspire 2022 competition is now open. Schools can register to take part by completing the online form by the deadline of 7 January 2022.
For a chance to win a cash prize for your school all you need to do is get a team of between 4 and 6 students together and produce a video to inspire civil engineers of the future. Students must be in Year 7.
Teams must produce a 2 minute video which answers the question "How are civil engineers creating a sustainable world?”
Choose a topic below to form the theme of the video. Here you will find further information and useful resources about the topics listed.
This competition is a great chance for students to put research and creative skills to the test and to learn about a rewarding career.
All entries will be assessed by a panel of professional and local engineers.
