On 26 February 2018 in University College Cork, fifth classes from Togher Girls’ and Boys’ National Schools graduated  from “Engineering in a Box”, the 10-week programme for primary schools provided by STEAM EDUCATION.

The vision of STEAM EDUCATION is to inspire children to love STEAM subjects and to become the future generation of Scientists, Technologists, Engineers, Artists and Mathematicians.

To achieve their goal, the team at STEAM provides innovative, fun, hands-on educational 10-week programmes in these subject areas in primary schools. The programmes are delivered using a co-teaching model – real life experts from industry and academia working with the teacher, using specially designed tools and content to deliver the sessions. Lesson plans, activities and materials are all provided.

STEAM’s vision is that Engineers are problem solvers so, together with the children, they look at problems/ challenges that have faced humans throughout history and consider how we can work to solve them.

The Engineering-in-a-Box programme in Togher National Schools was funded by Cork City Council through a combination of the Creative Ireland Programme and RAPID funding, which allowed four 5th classes to participate.

“The graduation is an opportunity for the students to get a tour of UCC and a taste of what life is like as a student,” said Sandra O’Meara, Cork City Council.

“It’s an opportunity to see going onto 3rd level in a STEAM subject as a real possibility”
