Na hInnealtóirí is a new fun-filled children’s series all about Engineering. With the help of Na hInnealtóirí team Colm Ó hAnluain and Maria Schaler, budding engineers get to fulfil their dreams as they get to design and create some exciting engineering projects of their very own and learn about some great engineering inventions and facts along the way.
Each week Colm takes on a challenge set by his two guests where he helps the children to design and build a project of their choice, from an Electric Go-kart to a treehouse ladder to an ornithopter, a crane and a bike trailer. There are no limits to what can be built in the workshop.
Meanwhile, Maria looks at the inventors behind some of these projects and shares some interesting facts about how these projects are used in today’s world, and she shows us how we can build simple and fun engineering projects at home.
Children from all over Ireland participated in the series with some amazing projects built along the way.
“This was an inspirational series to work on and to see the children design and create projects from beginning to end with the help of our expert Colm ó hAnluain was very rewarding. We had great support from Engineers Ireland on the series and I believe this new television series will encourage children to embrace science, technology, math and engineering and show them how possible and fulfilling a STEM career can be,” says Producer Eileen Seoighe, Abú Media Film Productions.
The 13-part series will broadcast each Thursday evening on TG4 at 4.55 pm from September 30th.
