The ICE’s Shaping the World stand at this year’s Big Bang Fair in Birmingham was well received by school children and teachers.
The stand, staffed by experienced civil engineer volunteers from across the industry, attracted around 500 visitors over the first two days of the show - the majority of whom engaged with all the activities on display.
The stand was delivered in partnership with Balfour Beatty, Taylor Woodrow, Skanska and Mott MacDonald to collectively represent the industry and inspire the next generation of civil engineers.
The Civil Engineers: Shaping the World stand gave visitors the chance to explore areas of civil engineering including water, energy, transport, structures, tunnelling and waste.
The Big Bang Fair is the largest celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM), aiming to highlight the kinds of jobs that use these subjects and provide advice on how young people might
follow a career using STEM qualifications.ICE stand inspires at Big Bang Fair
