3. Guidance for Teachers
At STEPS we understand that many teachers are not familiar with engineering. However, we also know that teachers would really like to do more engineering with their class. Introducing engineering to children at this young age is very important. They learn about engineering before they encounter bias or other barriers, and it creates awareness of the many options there are within engineering. In fact, in a recent survey we did we found that over 95% of teachers felt they would like to do more engineering with their class. We have listened to you!
Our Teacher’s Getting Started Mini-series is a great place to start for new and returning teachers. It features 6 short 6 minute videos on 6 topics relevant to you!
Remember: it is the students do the work - not you!
4. STEPS Volunteer Engineer school visit
You can sign up for a visit from a STEPS Volunteer Engineer through your online Registration Form. We cannot guarantee your school will get a visit as there are limited numbers of volunteer engineers.
To register for a visit:
Submit your project book to us before midnight Thursday 14th December.
The winning team and runners up will be presented with a custom designed steps young engineers award trophy for the school. Each member of the team will receive a framed certificate and medal for their achievement.
Highly commended projects will receive a trophy for their school, as well as medals and certificates for each member of the team.
All students will receive a young engineer award certificate.
We would love to see your class in action and to see all the schools around Ireland raise the profile of engineering. We are sure that some of your students will have excellent ideas.
