The ICE is gearing up for its annual ICE & Snow trip, to be held at the Tarrentaise Hotel at Meribel, in the French Alps, between 14 and 21 December.
ICE & Snow has been running since 2004. It is an annual, seven-day ski trip combining engineering challenges with alpine activities - helping to engage young people with engineering in an exciting and fun environment where engineering is all around them, and foster relations between the ICE, the engineering community and the outside world.
The event attracts professional engineers and their families from around the UK, along with graduates and students. After a day on the slopes the younger group members take part in optional engineering activities which include geocaching on skis - a treasure hunt using GPS technology to locate a hidden “cache”.
ICE & Snow has previously featured on the BBC news, and past participants have cited the trip as their reason for pursuing an engineering degree.
The trip costs £661 per adult and prices for children aged between two and 15 years old start at £406.
The price includes flights, transfers, half board and organised ICE activities for children and adults. The engineering activities are optional so those joining the trip do not have to participate and can just ski.
