      Hi 378envf27 🙂

      I’d like to create load of activites that show you everything you can do as a Civil Engineer. 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 – could we build a wind turbine or harness some energy from the sea or sun?, we’d have to get clean water – how could we collect rain water and make it clean enough to drink?, 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 🙂
