“CIBSE Introduces the Exciting CIBSE Flush Challenge, a Fun Educational Game for Students, Encouraging the Next Generation of Engineers”

CIBSE Launches Educational Game to Engage Young Minds in Building Services Engineering

London, UK – In an effort to inspire the engineers of the future and address the skills gap in the industry, the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) has announced the launch of the CIBSE Flush Challenge. The unique educational game is designed to capture the interest of pupils aged 9 to 11 and introduce them to the fascinating world of building services engineering.

Partly sponsored by CIBSE Patrons, the CIBSE Flush Challenge will be utilized by CIBSE STEM Ambassadors during their educational outreach activities at schools. This initiative aims to spark curiosity and ignite a passion for building services engineering among young minds.

Each participating team will receive a specially curated kit, featuring a 3D-printed model of a toilet and pipes. The challenge involves assembling a functional flush system that efficiently uses water to flush a small raisin down the toilet. This fun and engaging activity not only introduces children to the fundamental concepts of building services engineering but also instills the importance of water conservation and environmental responsibility.

The CIBSE Flush Challenge offers a hands-on learning experience, allowing pupils to gain practical knowledge of assembling and understanding the mechanics of a flush system. With a focus on water conservation, the challenge also promotes awareness about the need to use resources wisely and reduce water consumption. The game is tailored to align with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) principles, making it an ideal tool for STEM education initiatives. By introducing young minds to the field of building services engineering, CIBSE aims to inspire the engineers of the future and contribute to closing the skills gap in the industry.

Dan Costelloe, CIBSE Chair of the Talent Pipeline and Apprenticeships Panel, expressed his enthusiasm about the CIBSE Flush Challenge, stating, “During the creation of the Flush Challenge, we wanted to come up with an activity that would combine building services engineering, sustainability, and teamwork. We believe that by making learning fun and interactive, we can capture the imagination of young individuals and show them the exciting possibilities within the world of building services engineering, maybe even inspiring some of them to become our engineers of the future. The CIBSE Flush Challenge not only nurtures essential skills but also infuses a sense of environmental responsibility.”

CIBSE encourages schools and educators to participate in this initiative, providing students with a unique and enjoyable introduction to the world of engineering. For more information about the CIBSE Flush Challenge and how to get involved, visit the CIBSE website.
