Case Study: St. Raphaela’s Primary School
St.Raphaela’s Primary School aims to encourage all pupils to explore the exciting world of engineering during Engineers Week 2018. During the busy week family members, friends and local partners will visit the school to highlight the diverse career opportunities engineering offers. Answering the school’s call, engineers from a wide variety of organisations and institutions have volunteered to come to chat with our girls about the crucial role engineers play in the development and functioning of our modern society.
Our special visitors are all employees, alumni or currently studying engineering. The girls will learn about how engineering is all around them from having clean water to transport systems; Construction and Design; Civil and Environmental Engineering; Software Development; Bioengineering and Biomedical.
