For engineering week the IT Sligo hosted an engineering fair on Sunday 3rd March 2019 it was the first Engineering Fair at IT Sligo and it was a  great day out for all the family – children and adults!  Between 12 -5pm there was a range of performances, interactive displays, workshops and demonstrations for all to enjoy. Here are some of the things there:

Dr Megaphone went through three hundred years of scientific and engineering history throughout Ireland. 

Niamh Shaw  is on a mission to get to Space and in her own unique way explored what happens to us when we allow ourselves to pursue our childhood dreams. This inspirational Irish engineer told her story, sharing the highs and lows of the journey so far, with videos of her recent adventures on the simulated Mars mission and her work with the European Space Agency.

There was even an iconic Delorian car on display in front of the IT aswell!
