Christmas competition to boost children's interest in engineering


Father Christmas has issued a call for expressions of interest in creation of a back-up present delivery plan in case his trusty sleigh and reindeers encounter operational problems on 24 December.

The competition is being run by the ICE as part of a free exhibition at its One Great George Street headquarters in London.

The best idea will win a trip to Legoland for the successful entrant and their class at school.

Also at the exhibition will be the chance for children to create an imaginary city of the future with Meccano and Lego, as well as to build bridges with K’Nex

ICE’s Town Play Map will be available for use, to get youngsters thinking about how and where civil engineering is used in their towns.

The ICE Christmas Exhibition runs daily from 4 to 18 December, see here for more details.
