ICE joins Big Bang Fair stand

Big Bang forth bridge activity

The ICE teamed up with the industry to develop a stand showcasing the diverse and exciting careers on offer in civil engineering at this month’s Big Bang Fair. 

The Big Bang Fair  is due to take place between 16 and 19 March at the NEC in Birmingham. It is the largest UK celebration of science, technology engineering and maths careers.

The “Civil engineers: Shaping the world” stand was assembled with the support of Mace, Morgan Sindall, Mott Macdonald, Galliford Try, the Institution of Structural Engineers, Bam Nuttall, Black & Veatch, Kier and Skanska. It gives seven to 19 year olds the chance to explore civil engineering through  interactive and problem solving activities. 

A “Find the Civil Engineer within you” interactive quiz was introduced this year to help young visitors find out which civil engineering job best suits their personality. 

The “prop up Pisa” activity also returned – challenging students to steady the famous leaning tower. There were also challenges to create the tallest tower and design the sturdiest bridge.
