Jacobs Engineering Challenge 2018

12 Dec - 07 Feb

Glasgow City Council and JACOBS Engineering have teamed up to create ‘STEM the Flow’, a climate adaptation challenge for Primary and Secondary schools. There will be three challenges to choose from that cover a variety of themes including; Air Quality, Sustainable Food and Flood Prevention. Resource packs will be provided for all participating schools.

Schools will work alongside JACOBS to find a solution to your chosen problem and then showcase your work at a celebration event in May. The project should be run with P7 at Primary level or S1/2 at Secondary with a team of up to 5 pupils.

The challenge will last 10 weeks and is to launch mid-February with a teacher twilight to talk you through the 3 projects and give you an opportunity to meet your industry mentor. This is a great chance to both work with a major engineering firm in Glasgow and to engage with industry experts from the climate change and environmental sector.

To express your interest please send a return via email to by Friday the 26th of January. This is required to plan the number of mentors needed.
