We’ve always enjoyed taking part in Engineer’s Week activities – back in 2005, we were the Senior Engineering Class of Ireland and the trophy was one of the coolest we’ve ever seen!

This year, we really enjoyed Engineer’s Week. You can see an overview of all of our activities here. We were so excited to get an email from the STEPS co-ordinator, Sylvia Leatham, to tell us that we had won a prize for our efforts! Here’s the press release from STEPS. Sylvia had very kind comments about our work:

Your blog gave us a great sense of what you did – it looks like you really embraced the week. We especially loved how the Wordle showed the progress that was made during the week in terms of altering perceptions of engineering. And the podcast, electric paint and experiments were all fantastic. We liked that you referenced our resources too!

The amazing news is that we’ve won a show from Scientific Sue for the whole school in April. The boys who were at the Intel Mini-Scientist Regional Finals saw Scientific Sue in action and thought she was amazing! We can’t wait to welcome her to St Peter’s!

Robert from 5th class made the Vine to thank STEPS. You can see more of his stop-motion work here.

Thanks so much to STEPS and to Engineer’s Week. We really enjoyed all the activities and we can’t wait to take part in 2015!

    Sue is going to be great. Her show out in Intel was so funny.
