We are delighted to announce that out of 140 schools from across the UK, our team of three talented Year 12 pupils has been awarded second place in this year’s ICE CityZen Competition. Isabella, Elizabeth and Megan won the Silver Award for a plan they created to implement heat pumps in order to cut carbon emissions at School. CityZen is a UK-wide competition in which student teams learn about civil engineering through completing virtual game challenges. They then take the lessons they’ve learned and apply them to their own civil engineering proposal and submit a video entry explaining their idea.
‘The ICE CityZen Competition experience was incredibly valuable, we all learnt a lot of technical skills and problem-solving techniques through the initial game, and applied these to a real-world problem in the video task. The process was challenging and exciting, teaching us many transferable skills in engineering and design, while allowing us to improve our communication and teamwork skills. After receiving the competition results, we were we lucky enough to be invited to the ICE headquarters in Westminster, where we had a celebratory lunch with the other winning teams and the ICE President. It was an exciting and informative day with a lot of interesting conversations!’
Megan, Year 12
