As part of Engineer’s Week 2018, Senior Infants were very lucky to get a visit from Gerry the Engineer. The children interviewed Gerry about what it was like to be an Engineer and what was his favourite thing about being an engineer.
Gerry very kindly answered all the children’s questions. They learned a lot of interesting things about the work of an engineer, designing, making and improving his inventions.
Gerry brought his Robot Max with him to show the children and explained how Max was powered by a battery and circuits. Max’s eyes were actually two sensors and his arm was ran by a motor. The children had great fun with Max and Gerry.
The children got up and out of their seats to do the Robot dance.
The children then planned and designed their very own Robot.
