Engineers Week 2021

posted Mar 14, 2021, 2:54 PM by Owen Breslin
Engineers Week has become one of the most anticipated weeks of the academic year. This year was very different as many of our pupils were still at home, while our younger pupils had just returned to the scho0l building. Pupils engaged in the following activities:

  • watched STEPS Engineers week shows
  • engaged in engineering challenges
  • learned about the work of an engineer
  • attended the Microsoft Dream Space workshops
  • attended a Digital visit by an engineer

What should have been a very quiet Engineers week actually turned out to be one of our most successful ever. We wish to thank Ciarán Ó'hÁoláin, software engineer for giving his time to prepare a presentation and talk to the pupils about the work of an engineer. We also thank all of the helpers who helped out our budding engineers especially for the tasks completed at home. Our school staff had many other activities to be completed but as usual got behind Engineers Week and gave it their full support and for this we are very grateful. Finally we especially wish to thank our young engineers for bringing their imagination, their creativity and their enthusiasm to all of the activities they participated in. 

There are pictures and videos showing each class at work available in our STEM section which can be found here
