More than 250 students travelled to the Linenhall Theatre, Castlebar, last week to attend EirGrid’s inaugural schools’ science programme Understanding Electricity - From Power Station to PlayStation. The show, which was held during Engineers Week, is based on the Junior Certificate science curriculum, with particular emphasis placed on practical experience and audience participation.

Aidan Corcoran, Grid25 manager, said: “A career in engineering is highly rewarding and there will continue to be many opportunities in this exciting discipline both at home and abroad.”
