Institution of Civil Engineers to open Time is Running Out exhibition
A new Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) exhibition is highlighting the vital role of civil engineers in helping society respond to the challenges of climate change and meet net zero targets by 2045 in Scotland.
The ‘Time is Running Out’ exhibition at Glasgow Science Centre, from Saturday, 1 April until Thursday, 13 April 2023, is an educational experience ideal for families, young people and those wanting to learn more about engineering.
Featuring original hand-drawn illustrations and animations, six children talk to TV presenter and engineer Rob Bell asking impactful questions around ending waste, the impact of transport, energy sources, value in water, smarter cities and living with flooding. These topics address the future of infrastructure and a wide range of global problems in the aim to inspire young people who are passionate about the environment to consider civil engineering as a career.
Ben Westland ICE Scotland director, said: “Welcoming such an impactful exhibition into the region that not only engages young people but adults alike, is important to spark conversation about the global problems that impact the future of infrastructure.”
Dr Gillian Lang, director of experience development at Glasgow Science Centre, added: “We are delighted to host the ICE Time is Running Out touring exhibition here at Glasgow Science Centre. Having the exhibition in-situ during the Easter school holidays will be a great opportunity for our visitors to engage and learn about engineering a net zero world.”
