Welcome teachers! Engineers Ireland is looking to find talented young engineers across the country through its flagship competition: the STEPS Young Engineers Award.
The STEPS Young Engineers Award is aimed at 3rd and 4th class primary school students in the Republic of Ireland. Students taking part identify a project they would like to do that would improve their community. They use the structured worksheets provided in the STEPS Project Book to tackle the project like a real engineering team.
This is a project-style competition where you will be asked to divide your class into teams of 5 or 6. Each team will come up with a project idea by identifying something they would like to improve in their community.
Applications are currently closed. Please register your interest for this year's event below.
