Ms. Molloy’s 3rd class are taking part in the STEPS Young Engineers Awards Project this year.

They had a visit from an engineer, Mr. Dave Keeshan, this week.  Mr. Keeshan is a past pupil of our school and was excited to return and see all the children’s work.

They all presented the projects they have been working on for the last few weeks.  They have learned so much working as engineers! Take a look at some photos below.
