Ms Margie McCarthy, Science Foundation Ireland during the official presentation of our Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Discover Primary Science and Maths Award (DPSM) to our school,, together with Minister of State for Training, Skills, Innovation, Research and Development, John Halligan TD.
The Awards recognise the achievements of children and teachers in the application of STEM in their curriculum. This includes keeping a log of STEM activities they have undertaken throughout the school year such as classroom investigations and projects, participating in STEM-related field trips and hosting a scientist or engineer speaker visit.
Our guest speaker this year was Dr. David Moore from Limerick University. Dr Moore is an Aeronautical Engineer and in fact a past pupil of our school.
