Thanks from your winner, Mark

Wow, what an event! Two weeks of answering your questions and chatting to you certainly did send my head spinning, in a good way. Thank you to all those that voted. I am very proud to have won, although at first I couldn’t quite believe it. The prize money will be put towards refurbishing a demonstration rig that can be taken out to STEM events… Coming to an event near you perhaps… I’ve never taken part in an event like this before so in the run up I did get worried about what I had let myself in for! As it turns out I needn’t have worried, the moderators kept everything moving smoothly, the other engineers — Cathy, Jaz, Roma, and Rory — provided a fantastic insight into their jobs and you, the students asking all sorts of things.

We have a tie!

There will be no eviction today in the Cities Zone as we have a two way tie! That means the first engineer will be evicted tomorrow, and another every day this week! You get a new vote each day so make sure to VOTE to keep your favourite engineer in the competition. A student in each zone will win a £20 WH Smith voucher for asking great questions (questions that aren’t about One Direction). And remember, you can comment on questions the engineers answer. Do you think the engineer is right? Do you disagree with them? Tell them!
