Users will be able to collect points while exploring what being a civil engineer is about.
The ICE’s interactive 360° Inspire website has been updated with gamification functions to encourage more young people to explore what being a civil engineer is about.
Users are now awarded points for finding and viewing content on the website, which was launched in 2021.
Visitors to the site are immersed in a virtual environment that mimics the real world.
There, they can choose to view films in a virtual cinema, explore civil engineering projects in a gallery, get age-specific, next-step advice in the careers area, and meet real ICE members throughout.
This latest update to ICE Inspire is a tried and tested gamified format to increase dwell time on the site.
It has been developed by TMC, which previously created a suite of educational sites for technology giant Siemens.
The CityZen Pollution Control game was also added to the site earlier this year.
It can be found within the CityZen posters inside and outside the virtual careers centre.
Inspire needs you
The ICE is looking for civil engineers and teachers to help shape the Inspire website.
