I think I want to be an engineer when I grow up!
I never realised, up until working at EirGrid's Young Engineers shows last week, that engineers have such exciting jobs.
I was called recently for a commercial photography shoot for the EirGrid Young Engineers shows in The Bridge House Hotel in Tullamore. I was delighted to go along, but I had no idea just how exciting and inspiring I would find the shows! I genuinely envy today's kids for the exciting opportunities they have before them.
I was a little distracted by the job in hand, but I still managed to learn so much about the future of engineering and energy production. The kids from Tullamore College, Colaiste Colm and Colaiste Naomh Cormac who attended the shows really enjoyed joining in on the experiments, as did the teachers... I think they almost enjoyed it more than the kids.
I have to say, the presenters did a great job of conveying a sense of wonder and excitement about the subject. They definitely had me hooked.
