Volunteer registration & workshops
Volunteer engineers -- in advance of Engineers Week, make sure you're registered with the Engineers Ireland STEPS programme.
Registering means that the STEPS team can contact you about volunteer opportunities, and keep you up-to-date with the latest news.
HR managers & volunteer coordinators -- Does your organisation have a number of engineers who would like to volunteer during Engineers Week? Would they be interested in a volunteer workshop, to learn more about Engineers Week, get communication tips and share ideas for activities?
A limited number of workshops are available in the weeks ahead. Please get in touch with the STEPS team to express your interest in a workshop.
We need volunteer engineers for a number of roles during Engineers Week, including:
- School visits
Details of how to visit a school during Engineers Week can be found on our SmartSTEPS portal. If you are not yet a volunteer please register with us.
- I'm an Engineer, Get Me Out of Here
Apply now for this online competition for engineers, where students are the judges. Five engineers post their profiles, answer questions and take part in live online chats with school students.
