Engineers Ireland is looking to find talented Young Engineers across the country through it's flagship competition: the STEPS Young Engineers Award. 

The STEPS Young Engineers Award was launched in 2018, and is aimed at 3rd and 4th class primary school students in the Republic of Ireland. 

Students taking part identify a project they would like to do that would improve their community. They use the structured worksheets provided in the STEPS Project Book to tackle the project likea real engineering team. There  


The application takes about 5 minutes - so please be patient. There are step-by-step instructions,with screen shots, available here to help you.

Fun Quizzes

We have designed some interactive worksheets to introduce the students to engineering in a fun way and to debrief after the project is complete. These are a fantastic way to warm up before the project and to cool down after.

We would love to see how the students felt about engineering before they start and then to compare this with their attitude to engineering after.
So, don't forget to send your students quizzes with your competition entries!
