Engineers Week 2020
Engineers Week is a week-long festival of nationwide events celebrating the world of engineering in Ireland. The annual event is coordinated on a national basis by Engineers Ireland’s STEPS programme -funded under Science Foundation Ireland.
DBFL Consulting Engineers are delighted to have partnered with Engineers Ireland to celebrate and promote the profession of engineering in the community this year. We are proud to have done our bit to help inspire hundreds of children during Engineers Week 2020.
Team DBFL comprised of 8 civil, structural and transportation engineers working together with Engineers Ireland and three Dublin schools to inspire the next generation of engineers to increase their knowledge and understanding of the world of engineering. The team delivered fun filled workshops which included informative engineering presentations and a Structure Making Challenge in the following three schools:
- North Dublin Muslim National School, Dublin 7
- Drimnagh Castle Primary School, Dublin 12
- Holy Spirit Senior Primary School, Dublin 12
DBFL goodie bags full of prizes and certificates were awarded to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place groups of the structure making competition.
We were inspired by the creativity, innovation and curiosity of the children. We received great positive feedback from the schools and look forward to visiting them again next year.
