Children's workshop on engineering takes place in Newbridge

Newbridge library

To mark Engineers Week, Newbridge Library is holding a unique workshop for children based on engineering, engines and motors.

This free workshop is for children aged from eight to 12 years old.

It will explore how engines and motors work in electric cars and compare them to conventional cars powered by diesel and petrol.

It takes place on Wednesday February 28 from 3.30pm to 4.30pm.

Booking is required.

"We want to encourage the public to get involved in growing science at a local level and learn more about how nature works. This inevitably informs attitudes towards sustainable development, health and innovation. Learning science also gives the student more career path options. Some people go through life without having ever known what its like to lool through a microscope or telescope, and we want to change that," said the organisers.

"As places are limited, if there is a further demand, please ask people to get in touch with us at sciencecultureIreland@gmail.com and we can do our best to nurture the hunger for exploration and knowledge." 

Further information is also available by calling the library on 045 448353 or email newbridgelib@kildarecoco.ie Visit www.kildare.ie/library to find out more.
