Imaginosity Dublin Children’s Museum is entering into a three-year sponsorship with Audi Ireland, enabling it to create interactive engineering programmes for children.

As part of Engineers Week 2011, the museum is running a series of events, including bespoke workshops for school groups.

Based in Sandyford in Dublin 18, Imaginosity is the only children’s museum in the country and has welcomed 370,000 visitors since opening in August 2007.

Audi’s partnership with Imaginosity stems from a common focus found in both organisations, according to the partners. Imaginosity is committed to fostering innovation in the next generation through its ethos of interactive multi-sensory learning. Audi is a company at the forefront of innovative design and engineering and pushes the boundaries to find exciting solutions to future problems.

Audi is committed to seeding the talent of the next wave of Irish engineers and designers, and Imaginosity creates an environment that will inspire children to get involved in this type of innovation.

Speaking about the new sponsorship, Orla Kennedy, CEO, Imaginosity, said, “Imaginosity champions the ‘hands-on: minds-on’ philosophy that enhances children’s learning and encourages all visitors to get involved and have lots of fun. We really look forward to working with the Audi Ireland team over the next three years.”

The new Audi A1 will be introduced to Imaginosity’s Garage Exhibition at the end of March, which will mark the official launch of the partnership.
