Visits to IMR Labs
IMR takes part in national initiatives including Engineers Week, Tech Week and Science Week by hosting events in its high-tech lab in Mullingar. Visiting students and teachers are introduced to what Industry 4.0 is, the different technologies being used in advanced manufacturing and meet researchers working in the lab. Students also participate in hands-on STEM workshops linked to the Irish primary school curriculum.
IMR has developed a series of engineering challenges that aim to introduce primary school students (9-12 years old) to key areas of advanced manufacturing and take the roles of engineers while having fun! The challenges have been designed to be completed either individually, in pairs or in groups.
