Abbott inspires Tipperary pupils

Eight volunteers from Abbott’s vascular facility in Clonmel rolled up their sleeves last week to inspire more than 200 students from CBS High School Clonmel, Colaiste Dun Iascaigh, Cahir and Greenhills School, Carrick on Suir about the wonders of engineering. The project coincided with Engineers Week, a week-long programme of nationwide events celebrating the world of engineering, which ran from 28th February to 5th March inclusive. The aim of the week is to create positive awareness and spark enthusiasm about the engineering profession to people of all ages, especially students, teachers and parents. The application of engineering in everyday life is a key feature of the programme. The volunteers from Abbott’s vascular facility worked with the students to guide them through exciting and diverse projects that traverse the various fields of engineering.
