BAM Visit St Michaels Chapelizod for Engineers Week
10th March 2017
BAM Engineers Yvonne Jones (BAM PPP) and Kathy O’Leary BAM Ireland met with staff and pupils at St Michaels School, Holy Angels, in Chapelizod on March 10th last for Engineers week.
They talked about their careers as engineers and how much fun it was to be an engineer – you never get bored! Yvonne showed them some great footage of how the Newlands Cross Flyover was built. The pupils were great at spotting the different ways engineers are involved in designing and building everyday things they see and use in their houses, at school and at the beach. The pupils created some fantastic structures from Lego, straws and lollipop sticks. They are a very talented bunch and we are hoping that they might come and work with us in BAM some day! Their teachers deserve special praise for how they prepared the pupils for the visit and got them working on their designs and helped test them for stability.
