The Health Zone student winner is…

Emily, congratulations!

During every event we ask the engineers and moderators to nominate their top student — one who’s made the most of the event, shown enthusiasm and asked some really great questions.

Emily from St Colmans Clara National School was nominated by the engineers for being ‘participating, curious and had good questions’. Their questions in ASK included: “Have you ever used light (sun light) to power a tv without having to plug it in?” “How many problems have you solved so far in your career?” and “How many machines have you made so far to help doctors with people?

As the student winner, Emily will receive a certificate and a gift voucher.

Well done to Emily, and to everyone who took part. There were so many interesting questions, and comments, but there could only be one winner in each zone. Continue reading

Thank you from your winner – Kevin


I first heard about I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! in a Twitter post from a previous contestant recommending that engineers should take part. It seemed like a great idea, so I signed up immediately.

I ran it by my manager in work, and he was very supportive, allowing me the time to take part in the chats, as long as my work didn’t suffer. In BD, we are often involved in events promoting STEM to young people.

I was delighted to be selected for the Health Zone.
The chats were far more frantic than I expected. I was impressed by the level of the questions from the students, both in the live chats and in the “Ask” section. I’m confident that there’s no shortage of great up-and-coming scientists and engineers to fill the many roles that continue to be created in STEM industries and institutions across Ireland.

I’d like to thank all of the students who took part, and their teachers for signing up their classes. You made this the enjoyable experience that it was, with great engagement, and technical questions that regularly challenged the engineers’ knowledge. Continue reading
