The Space Zone student winner is…

lanicarterr, congratulations!

During every event we ask the engineers and moderators to nominate their top student — one who’s made the most of the event, shown enthusiasm and asked some really great questions.

lanicarterr from Torquay Girls Grammar School was nominated by the engineers for their “thought experiment” questions in their live chat, and their ASK question of: “as you stated, you are a Space Operations Engineer. My question is: do you ever aspire to go to space or participate/be involved in assisting a mission to space?

As the student winner, lanicarterr will receive a certificate and a gift voucher.

Well done to lanicarterr, and to everyone who took part. There were so many interesting questions, and comments, but there could only be one winner in each zone. Continue reading

Thank you from your winner – Brian


Hi everyone! Thank you to everyone involved in the I’m an Engineer event! All the moderators, teachers, engineers, and students deserve a big thank you for making the event possible.

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.

I’m sure the other space zone engineers will agree, I hope you learned something new during the event and saw that engineers can be fun, interesting people. Hopefully you realized there isn’t much difference between us engineers and you students. Especially if you enjoy math, science, problem solving, and space!

Again, thank you to everyone who participated in I’m an Engineer! Students, keep asking questions to understand how/why things work and use the same creativity I saw in our chats. I wish you all the best! Continue reading
