STEM Careers talk for Mountrath school 

IMR’s Outreach and Education Programme Lead, Isabel Meza, will deliver an online STEM Careers Talk for Mountrath School on Monday the 8th of November. In partnership with Midlands Science, this talk aims to spread the message that there are so many potential job opportunities available in science, technology, engineering and manufacturing and demonstrate why a career in these fields is a good choice. 


How could Circular Economy be implemented in your school? 

Transition Year classes were invited to record a video answering the question “How could Circular Economy be implemented in your school?” to compete for the chance to win a visit to IMR’s Lab in Mullingar. IMR and CIRCULÉIRE are delighted to welcome back students to our Lab on the 10th of November. The winning class will interact with cutting-edge technology such as 3D printing, collaborative robots and artificial intelligence, meet role models working in manufacturing and STEM and take part in a circular economy challenge with circular economy experts! 


Innovate and Inspire with Science and Technology Role Models 

IMR is pleased to partner with Midlands Science to pre-record a STEM careers event called Innovate and Inspire with STEM. This event will be available for secondary school registration and will include interviews with STEM professionals and a Questions and Answer session also. Speakers for this initiative are from engineering and technology companies who look forward to bringing students some inspirational advice and insightful tips on STEM careers and showing them how exciting it can be.
