I'm an Engineer, Get me out of here!
I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! is a free, online event where school students get to meet and interact with real engineers.
Students login during a 2 week period to ASK the engineers anything they like. Students challenge the engineers over a fast-paced online live CHAT during a lesson.
The event is a competition between engineers and the students are the judges; students VOTE for their favourite engineer to win the event.
All resources and support are provided for teachers to facilitate this event. It's student-led nature makes it appropriate for students of all abilities from Year 5-13.
- develop confidence in their ability to talk about STEM topics as they ask questions

- become aware of a range of engineering careers & may discover future career options
- have improved attitudes towards STEM subjects
- learn about engineers’ interests, likes and dislikes, and find areas in common
- understand individual engineers’ motivations and achievements
- develop in SMSC
