“I’ve been genuinely inspired” – March 2019 winners’ blog posts

After every event we ask the winning engineers to write a short post to be sent to all the students who took part in the zone. It’s the perfect way for the engineers to reflect on the previous two weeks, thank all the students for voting for them, and talk about how they plan to use their £500 prize money.

If you’re an engineer keen to experience the ‘best crash course in scicomm’, apply now for the next event, taking place 10th – 21st June 2019, at imanengineer.org.uk/engineer-apply

Brian Weaver, University of Nottingham, Space Zone

Students, I really enjoyed your enthusiasm in our live chat sessions! Your questions helped me find new ways to explain my work and taught me something new when I had to search for answers. Your creativity and interest in “why” things work will help you succeed in your education and future careers.

If you’re up for the challenge, want to answer some downright weird questions, even learn things from students…
