Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2019

01 Feb - 30 May

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 by Friday the 25th of January 2019.
