ESB and Generation Tomorrow
Since our foundation, ESB has always had a strong sense of purpose; to enable social and economic progress for the good of society. Today, ESB’s ambition is to help create a brighter future for all by leading the transition to reliable, affordable, low-carbon energy powered by clean electricity.
A future that will need creative, innovative, problem solvers.
That is why ESB - through our Generation Tomorrow programme - is supporting partners that are dedicated to empowering young people to reach their potential and power their collective brighter future. Over the next five years, ESB will invest more than €7.5m to support the work of our partners including TechSpace (part of Camara Ireland), RDS (organisers of ESB Science Blast) and The Cool Planet Experience.
'ESB is committed to leading the transition to a low-carbon future, powered by clean electricity. By helping young people to develop scientific literacy and critical thinking skills through programmes that encourages curiosity and discovery, we can help them not only to become creative and innovative problem solvers, but also active and engaged citizens, capable of making informed choices to tackle climate change and other global challenges.' Pat O'Doherty, Chief Executive of ESB.
Supporting STEAM during Engineers Week
ESB is proud to support Engineers Ireland and STEPS as part of our Generation Tomorrow STEAM programme. To celebrate Engineers Week (2nd – 8th March) we have a number of “Engineering Week Curiosity Boxes” to give away to schools across Ireland.
The Curiosity Box is an award winning Science, Tech, Engineering and Maths (STEM) activity box created especially for primary school children aged 7-11. Each box is carefully curated to bring the curriculum to life while giving children a fun but informative peek into the science universe.
This Curiosity Box provides a class of 30 and their teacher with all the materials and comprehensive lesson plans to carry out an exciting and engaging Engineers Week classroom based learning activity.
If you would like to apply for a Curiosity Box for your school, just email firstname.lastname@example.org before 12pm Tuesday 26th February with your school name and location and answer this question – when does Engineers Week take place?
All winning schools will be contacted directly and Curiosity Boxes will be sent out by post Wednesday 27th February.
