Roughan & O'Donovan is committed to ensuring that children have the opportunity to see engineering in action, from the very earliest age.
Every year, our volunteers visit primary and secondary school children, in classrooms around Dublin, to talk about the diverse and exciting career opportunities engineering offers.
In 2016, we hosted our own Engineers Week event, which saw 30 transition year students from local school, St. Benildus College, race to build a tall tower, using only a packet of spaghetti and a bag of marshmallows, in 45 minutes.
Speaking about the event, Harry Meighan, managing director, Roughan & O'Donovan, said:
We wanted the students to experience engineering at its best, most creative and fun. That kind of excitement helps when they go back to the classroom to learn about the basic scientific principles underpinning engineering solutions.
