The ICE superheroes are flying back!

05 October 2020

ICE's new activity booklet featuring engineering superheroes is aimed at sparking inspiration in young people. Find out more.

The ICE superheroes are flying back!
Meet the new ICE superheroes.

ICE launched the first superheroes in 2018 for our institution’s bicentenary to wide acclaim by public and press. The second group of ICE superheroes was created for our 2019 water exhibition.

Our new activity booklet links the featured superheroes and engineering projects to the incredible online library of ICE member and project profiles that we’ve been building for nearly three years here.

We’re hoping that our new line-up will ignite a spark of inspiration for many young people in schools across the UK and beyond. If you’ve got connections in schools as a parent, governor or through past engagements then why not let them know about this great free resource.

ICE’s education programme this autumn also includes an exciting series of digital careers events for young people aged 16-18 years. The ICE Inspiration Series is running from 24 September until 3 December and episodes are available to view as recordings as well as join live. We warmly invite you to spread the word about these free and insightful events too.
