Description

Winner of the Energy Zone in the "I'm an engineer. Get me out of here!" competition.

The event is organised to help promote engineering careers to secondary school children across the UK. The first stage involves the children selecting their top five favorite engineers from a pool of applicants - based on their answers to a questionnaire. Next, the five finalists spend a week engaged in online text chats with school children around the UK. Each day, the children vote to have one of the engineers evicted. The engineer who is left wins £500 to spend on public engagement.
