Discover Science and Maths Award 2017 Congratulations!

We have received our Plaque of STEM Excellence Award for the 2016/2017 academic year from Science Foundation Ireland.  Our plaque will arrive in June.  The following is the feedback we received on our Log of Evidence:

“Congratulations on your whirlwind journey of science!  This presentation is not only unique but utterly compelling and enjoyable too.  It’s clearly evident that staff and students alike were fully engaged in all aspects of the project and all should be rightly proud of their efforts.  Keep up the inspiring work!”

During the year the children from Junior Infants to Sixth Class have been busy completing some incredible science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) work in class and further afield.  We have participated in Science Week, Engineers Week, Scratch programming, Izak 9 problem solving and maths trails around the school.  We have been carrying out hands on investigations, doing experiments and completing design and make activities.  PowerPoints have been created, data has been presented on Excel; we used maths to record and analyse science investigation results and the children helped upload images on our STEM video and  our new website.  The children have attended workshops with Dale Treadwell and Sligo Leader and visited the Engineering Expo 2017 in Sligo IT with thanks to Eva Bourke.  Last week we held our fantastic STEM Showcase which was a resounding success.  Please find attached our Digital Log of Evidence which we have compiled to give a flavour of all the STEM work taking place in the school and which is being submitted in our bid to receive a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Award 2017.
