Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

01 Feb - 30 May

Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

Glasgow City Council and JACOBS Engineering have teamed up to create an engineering and sustainable development challenge for primary and secondary schools. There will be 3 projects for pupils to choose from all of which should use engineering to tackle plastic pollution in the Clyde river. A resource pack will be provided for all participating schools.

Pupils will work with JACOBS to find a solution to their chosen project and then showcase their work at a celebration event in May. The project should be run with P6/7 at primary level or S1/2 at secondary with a team of up to 5 pupils. The challenge will last 10 weeks and will launch mid-February with a teacher twilight to talk schools through the 3 projects and give them an opportunity to hear from JACOBS. This is a great chance to both work with a major engineering firm in Glasgow and to engage with industry experts from the engineering and sustainable development sector.

Participating schools should ensure a member of staff is available to attend a teacher twilight on either 7/02/19 or 18/02/19. Both twilight session will run from 4pm – 5pm.

To express your schools interest please send a return via email to stem@glasgow.gov.uk by Friday the 25th of January 2019.
