Library Labs: Engineers Week

Library Labs: Engineers Week

Saturday 2 - Friday 8 March 2024

Engineers Week has been created to introduce primary and secondary school children to the diverse world of engineering.

We have lots of schools events in our libraries to inspire children to open their eyes to how engineering is part of everyday life.

This year, we are also delighted to host public events which are open for booking now.

These events are part of our Library Labs: STEAM at South Dublin Libraries programme. Look out for lots more STEAM events coming up throughout the year!
