Welcome to the Kilogram Zone!
This is the Kilogram Zone, part of I’m an Engineer, Get me out of here.
Here, school students can connect with working engineers in March 2021.
I’m an Engineer is an online science enrichment activity, where students can:
- Ask engineers questions
- Chat with them in energetic live chats
- Vote for their favourite to win a €500 prize
Students can take part from home. It’s safe, secure, easy and flexible.
Teachers: Find out more about how it works >
The Kilogram Zone is funded by Science Foundation Ireland.Deep in a basement in Paris, in a vault that needs three keys to open, is THE kilogram. Known as the international prototype kilogram (IPK), this block of platinum-iridium is how we define the measurement. There’s some controversy around the kilogram, however, as measurements over the last century have shown that the IPK has lost about 50 micrograms – about the weight of a grain of sand. Because of this, since 2005 members of the International Committee for Weights and Measurements have been discussing other ways it can be defined.
