Who’s taking part in the Space Zone

I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here! is back this March. Between the 4th and the 15th, students from fourteen schools will be putting their questions to engineers in the Space Zone.

For the latest news and announcements about the event, find us on Twitter @IAEGMOOH, and follow the hashtag, #IAEIE.

The Space Zone is a themed zone supported by Science Foundation Ireland.

Brian O’Connor | Programme Officer, UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre

I find patterns in nature – forests, fields, rivers and lakes – by looking through satellite images from space. Changes in these patterns show where nature is disappearing and where in the world we need to go to save it.

Sita Karki | Computational Scientist, Irish Centre for High End Computing

I use satellite imagery to study environment and write computer programs for research.

Rory Scarrot | PhD Student, University College Cork

I try to figure out how the Earth is working using satellite data, and help others to do the same.

Alison Dufresne | Propulsion and Systems Engineer, Bradford Space

I design and built engines for satellites and spacecraft which are going into deep space to hunt for asteroids and more!

Stephen O’Connor | Materials Engineer, European Space Agency

I test materials used on satellites here on Earth before they are launched so that they will work correctly when performing their mission in space.

Hannah Currivan | Engineer, Innalabs and University College Dublin

I construct miniature satellites and learn to build rockets.
