Pitch 200

Pitch 200

Pitch 200 goes digital

Pitch 200 is an engineering competition with a difference!

Established as part of our bicentenary year in 2018, Pitch 200 shows how civil engineers transform lives and by doing so, encourage the next generation into the profession.

Pitch 200 draws on engineers’ creativity to demonstrate an aspect of civil engineering to the public in just 200 seconds!

This year, due to the coronavirus lockdown, Pitch 200 has moved online.

Civil engineers from across London and South East England have been asked to use everyday objects and the resources available to them at home to create a Pitch 200 video, with the regional winner being decided in a public vote.

The winner of the regional heat will go through to the Pitch 200 finale in the autumn - with the finale winner crowned the champion and the ICE Ambassador for 2021.

Watch the videos and cast your vote

STEM Ambassador of the Year

The South East England STEM Ambassador of the Year honours an individual who has shown outstanding commitment to civil engineering by giving his or her time, to inspire the next generation of civil engineers on behalf of the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Our Regional winner will go through to the National Final, with the winner announced during National Volunteers Week 1-7 June.

If you have been creative in reaching out to young people and championing STEM during the pandemic, please complete this form and send it to [email protected] by 31 March 2021.
