Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science & Maths Awards
Discover Primary Science (DPS) is a national programme from Science Foundation Ireland to foster interest in science and engineering among children in primary schools.
We have been taking part in the Discover Science Programme for many years. We have been awarded 12 plaques, one for each year we have taken part.
To be awarded a plaque requires lots of hard work from our students and teachers not forgetting the parents who come in to do science and maths activities with the pupils during Science week, Maths Week and Engineering Week.
Our most recent award was awarded to us in 2019. It was the first year where we had to submit our log of evidence digitally. We choose to make a video showing all the experiments and projects we had taken part in. We used more technology this year too. We learned how to use mini robots called Bee Bots. Some of our students used software to create graphs digitally. We took part in more STEM activities this year and had lots of fun making up our STEM activities too.
We are delighted to say that our application was successful and the judges were very impressed with our log of evidence and we were awarded a plaque.
This year we are working towards our 2020 award.
