ECubers Event

On Thursday June 23rd, Fifth Class students travelled to the University of Limerick to take part in an ECubers event.


ECubers is an initiative developed by the engineering company, SL Controls, to foster the technical skills required for a career in engineering.

Building the future of engineers in Ireland with LEGO® SL Controls, one of Ireland’s leading Equipment Systems Engineering firms launched a new programme called ‘ECubers™’ at University of Limerick to encourage more students, particularly young women, to study and pursue careers in engineering. The programme aims to help foster the technical skills required for a career in engineering – using all-round favourite our picture shows Ella Bohannon & Isabella Crowley Fifth Class students at Knockanean NS from Ennis Co.
