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.
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.
Winners will be announced after the Easter holidays.
The three best teams overall will be awarded cash prizes for their school:
The winning team will be announced via social media and feature in a news article on the website. Photos may also be used by ICE in future campaigns.
In the first instance a registration form must be downloaded and completed to show your intention to enter.
Deadline for registration is 5pm on Friday 18 December 2020. Download and submit registration form here
A resource pack will be sent via email to all teams that register with information about civil engineering and further details on the competition.
