WORKSHOP: Engineering Water Towers & Waterways

February 29, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0

Engineering Water Towers & Waterways

Did you know that STEPS Engineers Week promotes engineering and the importance of the profession to children in Ireland? Galway City Museum invites you to join Harriet Dundon, Mia Donnelly and Garry Kendellen celebrating #EngineersWeek, by taking part in a fun water tower activity designed for young people aged 8 to 11 years, on the 29th of February from 11am to 12pm. Parents/guardians welcome too!

The aim of our Water Tower Building and Waterways Activity is to positively showcase engineering as a rewarding and creative career choice to children across all communities.

Young people are invited to take on the Water Crisis Challenge and build a water tower using only tape, biodegradable cups, lollipop sticks and ingenuity. This activity is very challenging but a fun way to see the importance of engineering in our lives.

Mia Donnelly from the Galway Waterways Foundation said, “This activity is also important as it shows young people how water is safely transported to many homes and villages across the globe, and the clever engineering behind water towers.”

The Galway Waterways Foundation are also presenting a small talk on determining how healthy our water is by looking at what lives there, and the importance of conserving this finite resource.

The event is proudly supported by the Galway Waterways Foundation and Galway Atlantaquaria. Participants will receive an award for participation, as well as some goody bags kindly donated by Irish Water, The Marine Institute-Foras na Mara and INFOMAR.

Early booking is advised, please call or email: (091) 532460 /
