The Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) have created a venues map showing information about engineering challenges associated with preparing for the Commonwealth Games and also tells the stories of the engineers involved.
This map explores the engineering and design challenges faced in creating some of the venues including the Hydro, Emirates Arena, the Velodrome and the Athletes’ Village.
The map explains how engineers have tried to ensure the 2014 Games are the most sustainable and green games ever, organised safe, secure, reliable and accessible transport and the measures taken to protect wildlife and plant species during the engineering and building work.
It also contains links to relevant websites, ‘Did you know?’ facts and activity ideas for all age ranges and can be used as a teaching resource for numerous curricular areas including Social Studies, Numeracy, ICT, Science and Technologies.
