      Hi livgracex3 🙂

      It wouldn’t be an Engineering school but it’d be an activity I could bring into a school like yours. So I could visit your school for the afternoon and show you all the different things Civil Engineers are involved with. It’d be a big activity – maybe we survivied a zombie attack?! or more realistically maybe we survived a huge tornado that wiped out everything – so we’d need to become Civil Engineers to survive. We’d have an activity to build a shelter – maybe it would need to survive an earthquake?!, we’d have to get a power source, we’d have to get clean water, maybe we’d have to build a bridge to another town?

      There’s so many things we do as Civil Engineers and it’d be great to show you as many of these as possible in your school. Especially because not many people know about what Civil Engineering is 🙂
