Explore Engineering is a great way for people to find out about the built environment in their area and discover how civil engineers ‘shape the world’ – and who better to explain this than ICE members?
ICE is putting together a series of organised talks, tours and trails aimed at inspiring kids to consider civil engineering as a career and shout about how civil engineers transform lives for the better.
The programme will mix current projects with the rich heritage of infrastructure and split into three parts:
- Talks - hear about current projects and what life as an engineer involves
- Tours - guided visits to key projects or historic sites
- Trails - walking, cycling, rail or canal, with key information on important sites along the way
There will be a mix of online content, physical ‘guided’ tours, leaflets and talks on how civil engineering is changing our environment and improving lives by providing water, building roads and bridges, supplying energy, treating waste, etc.
- a cycle tour with details of the history of key sites along the way
- canal tours with commentary on the incredible heritage of this key feature of our landscape
- talks to your work, community group, college, school – on what civil engineers do
