The Production Zone student winner is…

268prdq36, congratulations!

During every event we ask the engineers and moderators to nominate their top student — one who’s made the most of the event, shown enthusiasm and asked some really great questions.

268prdq36 from St Pius X Girls’ National School was nominated by the engineers for their ‘insightful questions’, which included “If your human brain device works, will you make animal brains to find out more about their diseases?” and “What kind of things do you simulate?

As the student winner, 268prdq36 will receive a certificate and a gift voucher.

Well done to 268prdq36, and to everyone who took part. There were so many interesting questions, and comments, but there could only be one winner in each zone. Continue reading

Thank you from your winner – Diana


I have joined several STEM programmes before for students in different levels and after hearing about I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! I decided to participate. It seemed like a great opportunity to use the technology the students have now in their schools and help them understand what is and how is the engineering world.

Some questions were really challenging and I would like to thank all the students for their engagement in the chats, I hope I had answered all of your questions and hopefully you will know a bit more about engineering!

Thank you all for voting for me, it is really rewarding when I got some messages during the last chat saying that my job was the most important one, get clean water for all!

A huge thank you and congrats to all the other professionals in the production zone, all of them did a great job and were also winners! It was great to have you by my side during these two weeks!

Thank you to everyone that organises this amazing programme and for all the email reminders that my post-its on my screen didn’t send!!

This was a great experience and I truly feel the students enjoyed it! I wish every single student the best of luck in their future and remember what I told you: “Choose something that you like and you will succeed!” Continue reading
