Kilkenny Castle

OPW Kilkenny Castle is delighted to welcome back Bricks 4 Kidz on Sunday 5th March for a series of FREE STEM based workshops to mark Engineers Week 2023!
The theme of the workshops is the trebuchet! A trebuchet is a simple mechanism that flings objects through the air, similar to a catapult. Trebuchets were used during medieval battles
Each workshop is school age specific and includes a presentation & discussion about the trebuchet, followed by the build itself. Each student will receive a take-home sheet to recap on what they learned and to show their parents.
There will be a separate workshop for children in Junior & Senior Infants – “A Walk in the Park”. This workshop will consist of an array of 3D Lego Models related to our everyday environment such as animals & wildlife and man-made structures and machines.
The workshops are free but places must be booked in advance on
There are limited places available. There will also be wait lists for each of the workshops in the case that there are any cancellations.
