Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge 2019 (GMEC)

The Greater Manchester Engineering Challenge is an innovative project that aims to engage and inspire primary and secondary pupils and their teachers in the engineering design process and developing engineering habits of mind.

The challenge is sponsored by the Institute of Engineering and Technology and the Institute of Mechanical Engineers and forms part of the Engineering Education Grant Scheme.

This year’s challenge will focus on Engineering improves lives.

This year the challenge is top secret until the 19th March 2019. A series of challenges using the Engineering Design Process will be offered to schools, encouraging pupils to think as engineers to help find creative solutions to key issues that we face in society. Topics include:
