St.Mary’s NS, Alexion and STEAM Education Ltd once again teamed up to deliver the Engineering in a box program to the pupils of 6th Class in St. Mary’s.
This years program was delivered by Mr Noone, Miss Browne and Miss Anderson in collaboration with Alexion engineers. The lessons included building wind turbines to assembling electronic circuits. This was all made possible through the investment of fantastic resources and detailed planning of Alexion, coordinated by Michael Doyle, Senior Manager, Knowledge Transfer and Training and STEAM Education Ltd in Cork, lead by Alice D’arcy.
STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths and these are key subjects for the future, where career opportunities are huge. There is no doubt that this successful program has inspired the next generation of engineers in St. Mary’s.
