Engage students with space engineering

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here is an online STEM outreach competition, designed to get engineers talking about their work with students across the UK.

In November, the UK Space Agency are funding the Space Zone and space sector engineers can apply now to take part.

“I have been blown away by all the schools and students that took part; their questions, their passion and the efforts they all made to pose us some tricky and interesting questions!" Hollie Heard, materials engineer and Satellite Zone winner

Getting involved is an enjoyable and easy way to increase your STEM outreach work. You’ll develop your communication skills and gain a fresh perspective on your work, whilst showing students what it’s really like to work in the varied and exciting space sector.

Everything happens online; you take part from your desk or smartphone. Fill in your profile page, answer questions and use the text based chat system with students at schools all across the UK.

There’s no need to prepare activities or even take time out of the office. Even better, students vote for their favourite engineer, who wins £500 to fund more outreach activities.

Get involved

Apply by Monday 1 October.
