This week is engineering week in Ireland. There are many different types of engineers: mechanical, electrical, civil, nuclear to name just a few. An engineer is a person who designs and builds complex products, machines, systems or structures. Engineers want to know how and why things work. They have scientific training that they use to make practical things. Watch this video and see what an engineer is. https://watchkin.com/1adc800b05

This week you’re going to channel your inner engineer and design something. You have a choice of 3 things to design. You can choose all 3 or just pick one to try.

  1. Design a  Parachute
  2. Contruct a Marble maze
  3. Egg drop Challenge

I hope you enjoy the challenge and I look forward to hearing how you got on. Remember, if it doesn’t work out first time – persist!
