Engineers week 2017 is running from the 4th to the 10th of March and is a week-long programme of nationwide events celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland.

Each workshop will involve your child working on a team and using recycled materials to design, build and test their creations. There will be a creative artist there during the event to facilitate the workshop and ensure the children have a great time.
