Get ready for I’m an Engineer!

I’m an Engineer starts on Monday, two weeks stuffed with creative questioning, exciting live chats and tenser-than-the-X-Factor eviction days!

Let’s meet the engineers competing for votes in the Metre Zone and the schools who’ll be challenging them…

The Engineers

Alex Jaeger | Bioelectromagnetics Group, UCC

I help build robotic tubes to investigate the inside of peoples’ lungs.

Antonio Vargas-González  | Google

I make programs to find bad webpages in the internet.

Martin O’Halloran | National University of Ireland Galway

I use microwave signals to diagnose and treat diseases, such as cancer and stroke.

Nicola Greene | Sanitation Consultant, UNICEF

I work in Africa trying to improve access to toilets and subsequently treating the waste from them in the city of Blantyre, Malawi – can you imagine if we didn’t have toilets?

Christina Lynch | System support engineer

 I help customers solve any problems that they have by investigating a new puzzle every day!
