Engineer’s Week in Junior Infants

February 23, 2024

Engineer’s are people who are curious about how things work and use their creativity to solve problems. Where will you find a room full of engineers? Junior Infants, of course!

We loved learning about structural engineers and we used our blocks to build houses, towers and castles! Ms. O’Donnell taught us about biomedical engineers; we worked together to put new joints in the skeletons. We used our train set to work as mechanical engineers and our civil engineers were busy at work building bridges for the new calves and lambs.

 

We had great fun celebrating Engineer’s Week in Our Lady of Lourdes.
