WHAT IS S.T.E.M?

S.T.E.M is a focus on Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths in Irish schools.

 

Minister for Education and Skills has recently launched an expert report on education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) in Irish schools, and set out a programme to deliver on the ambition set out in the report of making Ireland a world-leader at providing STEM education.

Discover Primary Science & Maths Awards

 

For the past 4 years, our school has received the Discover Primary Science & Maths award which rewards schools who excel in the areas of Maths and Science.

 

There are five steps involved in applying for an award. They are:

 

  1. Science
  2. Technology
  3. Engineering
  4. Maths
  5. Show & Tell

 

This is quite an involved process and if you’d like to know more, please feel free to visit Primary Science.

 

Essentially though, this involves us recording and compiling all our Maths and Science activities throughout the year and submitting them to the Science Foundation Discover Primary Science & Maths Awards.

 

We hope to receive the award again this year. Keep an eye on our Blog under the STEM Category for regular updates on our journey – they’ll be the Blue Posts

 

If you’d like to help us on our journey please feel free to contact us.
