STEAM Team Logo Meath County Council Library ServiceThis year's STEPS Engineers Week 2022 takes place from Saturday, 5 - Friday, 11 March.

We have a daily quiz with a great prize to be won each day for ages 8 to 12, an online STEAM Storytime with a Fire Engine craft for preschoolers. And we're excited to be hosting our Lego Building Competition in Ashbourne Library this year.  

And we've partnered with The Rediscovery Centre, Mark the Science Guy and Go Fly Your Kite to offer some Zoom and in house events exclusively for schools.

Connecting the Railway Game

Network Rail have created a great game to help understand the problems they face when building a railway.

Connecting the Railway:

How would you build a new railway to join the residents of the town to a city?
Your task is to choose the best route through all the obstacles, thinking about how your choice will affect the company, environment and community.
