STEPS Engineers Week 2022 takes place from Saturday 5 - Friday 11 March. STEPS are here to support you along your journey to planning your activity. This page contains all the information that you need to get involved with STEPS Engineers Week 2022.
Support organisers to plan and carry out their own engineering activities with children in their local communities.
Help empower organisers to communicate effectively about engineering with children.
STEPS Engineers Week activities should show off what engineering is to young people. This is the only requirement from STEPS – otherwise the sky is the limit!
Do you need any activity idea? STEPS has collated a list of activities that you might like to carry out. These can be found below. If you have another engineering activity in mind, that’s great! Please do feel free to go ahead with your own activity. You can carry out the same activity each year, you are under no obligation from STEPS to come up with something new each year.
The STEPS team has selected a list of books about engineering and STEM.
Using the STEM Stories Reading List, create a book display.
Display a STEPS Engineers Week Reading List Poster on your notice board, window etc.
STEPS have a number of printable activity sheets that libraries can print for children to carry out in the library, or to take away and complete at home. Visit the Primary Section or Secondary Section of the Website for printable resources.
The Engineers Ireland STEPS team have paired up with Jasmine Florentine, author & project illustrator of Hex Allen and the Clanksmiths, to share Hex Allen's Guide to Defeating Monsters! Join Hex and her friends as they use science and engineering to get out of a bunch of scrapes, and make some fantastic gadgets in this special and exciting activity. Download now.
Jasmine has created a video demonstration especially for STEPS Engineers Week! Watch now on the Engineers Ireland YouTube Channel.
