To celebrate the day, the STEPS team has created Resources for Primary Schools for use in the classroom.

You and your class can discover the engineering of three of Ireland’s heritage sites:

  1. Parke’s Castle
  2. Hill of Tara
  3. Rock of Cashel

Each heritage site has an engineering challenge pack full of engineering themed hands-on activities, through which children can discover Ireland’s engineering and heritage history.

Each challenge pack contains:

  • full instructions
  • worksheets
  • fun hands-on activities that can be completed in small groups in 15 – 60 minutes
  • activities with curriculum links and engineering connections
  • activities intended for primary school children aged 8 to 12

Your class could make The Hill of Tara: The Mound of Hostages in Papier Mâché, Parke’s Castle: Brian’s Boat using newspaper and spaghetti or The Rock of Cashel: Weathering the Weather activity with a bathroom sponge and watercolour paints.

There are lots more activities to choose from using materials that are readily available!
