Engineers Week: Family Fair Dublin Line Up!

Engineers Ireland are proud to announce the line-up for the 14th Annual Engineers Week Family Fair!  The family fair will be taking place on Saturday 29th of February and Sunday 1st of March this year. We have a schedule jam-packed with fun engineering activities for you and your family to enjoy. Come and be inspired to join the marvellous world of engineering with shows raging from Explorium Excursions to Reptile Rooms!

This year, our activities are better than ever and will no doubt inspire the kids to pursue the idea of an engineering career. Kicking off the weekend in style is our Whizz Kids: Learn IT programme and we are also incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to provide FREE entrance into Explorium for all our Family Fair Guests on either Saturday or Sunday. We are running Lego building workshops, Electro Magnetic Shows and even a workshop on Bioengineering!

Through our Family Fair events we hope to inform our communities on the values of engineering, teaching people about the common good, sustainability, innovation and integrity that engineers pride themselves on.

 

We are delighted to announce FREE entry to Explorium for all Family Fair participants.

Explorium is a truly unique, world-class experience where science and sport fuse.
