“Civil engineers and structural engineers both help shape the world and improve people’s lives by designing, creating and maintaining the buildings and large structures that we need. They build all sorts of things so we can get around and live our lives safely – from roads, bridges and tunnels to railways, hospitals and airports.” Tomorrow’s Engineers: From Idea to Career

The Monte Rosa Mountain Hut (11-14)

This activity from Siemens challenges students to design a mountain hut that reduces heat loss.

They investigate the process of heat loss by the design, construction and use of physical models, considering the properties of different materials and their suitability for the purpose of constructing a model.
