Calmast, WIT’s STEM Engagement Centre, together with the School of Engineering at WIT organise the annual Waterford Engineering Week from Saturday 29 February to Friday 6 March 2020 to coincide with National Engineers Week. Waterford Engineering Week is also supported by Engineer’s Ireland’s STEPS programme.
During Engineering Week the School of Engineering shows the importance of engineering in our lives. It is a chance for primary and secondary pupils to engage in activities that promote creative problem solving, design and highlight the importance of science and maths. There will be a range of engineering quizzes, challenges, workshops, lectures and presentations for primary and secondary schools and an engineering in space careers event with ESERO and Blackrock Castle Observatory.
