St. Patrick's Junior and Senior National Schools have achieved a Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Maths Plaque of STEM Excellence for the 2017/18 academic year. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The students in St. Patrick's have been working extremely hard during the year on these areas. All classes were involved in the work that was carried out and we recorded a sample of the STEM work that took place across the school. They conducted science experiments, used technology in various subjects, developed their engineering skills, had guest speakers and they showcased their STEM work to other classes in the school. It is fantastic to see all of the science, technology, engineering and maths work being carried out in the school with such enthusiasm. Well done to all involved.
