This week is Engineers Week, a nationwide event that seeks to promote engineering activities and careers to young people in Ireland.
This week in St. Kevin’s GNS, the 2nd and 3rd classes will be given the option of completing a small engineering project in place of some of their normal homework. On Friday the 8th March, the students will have the opportunity to present their projects as part of an Engineering Fair and there will be a small prize giving for each class. There will also be other engineering activities organised during the week.
Here are some ideas for projects, but students can also chose their own project idea either
