Explore Engineering weekend shows off excellence

Over 25 guided tours made up a weekend of activities designed to showcase local feats of engineering across the country as part of the ICE 200 Explore Engineering programme.

Among highlights of the weekend was a tour of the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol for under 19 year olds, and a creative and action-packed day of activities at Royal William Yard in Plymouth.

A joint family fun day with ICE bridge and engineering challenges was held in Caerphilly which also supported International Women in Engineering Day. A guided walk of Newcastle explored the work of railway engineers George Stephenson and his son Robert.

Explore Engineering is one of several ICE 200 programmes aimed at inspiring young people to consider civil engineering as a career and help members of the public understand how civil engineers transform lives for the better.
