The week is coordinated on a national basis by the STEPS team at Engineers Ireland.
Engineers Ireland’s STEPS programme was established in 2000 to encourage primary and post-primary students to explore the world of science and engineering. The value of the programme has been formally recognised by Government and is a key element of Science Foundation Ireland’s Discover programme. STEPS is managed by Engineers Ireland and is supported by the Department of Education and Skills, Science Foundation Ireland, and a number of major engineering employers.
