Electricity and Engineering in Edenderry!

Yesterday we were delighted to present a hands-on, interactive workshop for a number of students in association with Edenderry Library in Co. Offaly. This event was an early part of a programme of activities which is being rolled out across the region by Midlands Science during national Engineers Week which takes place nationally from this Saturday.

Engineers Week promotes engineering and the importance of the profession to pupils all over Ireland and the aim of each event is to positively showcase engineering as a rewarding and creative career choice to people in all communities.

This workshop gave students from St. Mary’s Secondary School and Oaklands Community College in Edenderry a chance to explore the worlds of electricity, magnetism and semiconduc tor devices (the building blocks of computers) in a hands-on and relaxed environment.

The workshops were delivered by Dr. Dan Nickström from Maynooth University Dept. of Experimental Physics and we are looking forward to lots more fun and engaging events with Dan in the weeks ahead.
