On 31 May 2018, the Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) will be hosting EngineeringFest – an interactive STEM event at Diggerland. Located in Kent, the construction based theme park offers a relevant and interactive setting in which to engage children and their families in a fun day out, learning about engineering.

Supported by Stem Learning UK and Engineering UK, EngineeringFest aims to engage year 5-8 students, with a series of interactive STEM related activities. Organisations from across the Industry have the opportunity to participate as an activity provider and engage directly with the community, local schools and schools students as well as other STEM providers.

"EngineeringFest will be a celebration of engineering in South East England. We want to inspire the next generation into the industry, to increase the understanding of the value of civil engineering in the broader community. We are excited to collaborate with local organisations and the wider industry to showcase what engineering has to offer" said Suzanne Moroney, Director - ICE South East England region.

EngineeringFest is being held as part of the Institution of Civil Engineers' 200 anniversary celebrations which will be a yearlong of public events starting in January 2018- to educate the public about the contribution civil engineers make to our daily lives, and inspire the next generation into the industry.
