ICE launches digital ‘whodunnit’ game to promote civil engineering
ICE invites players to share their score.

ICE has launched a digital ‘whodunnit’ game that promotes civil engineering careers and a clean planet.

ICE CityZen: Pollution Control requires players to research the causes of pollution in the game, gaining insight into environmental, social, financial and political aspects of civil engineering.

The game was developed with expert input from members of the ICE’s education and inspiration advisory group.

It covers a broad range of topics including:

  • Pollution
  • Sustainability
  • Protected species and environments
  • Water quality and management
  • Ethics

ICE CityZen: Pollution Control can be found in the ICE Inspire virtual careers centre. CityZen posters can be seen on the interior and exterior of the building.

The game is free and available for everyone aged 11 and over.
