Year 8 STEM club 2016

Year 8 STEM club has had a busy year  with pupils completing projects ranging from dissecting owl pellets to making copper sulpate geodes.   A seaweed workshop  from the Lough’s Agency  ensured all pupils understood the wide range of uses it had, even as a food ingredient and the local environmental officer will be conducting a bat workshop and mammal trail with pupils in June to mark the end of another STEM club year. 

Pupils have had the opportunity to choose and complete  many science based activities of interest to them which fall outside the practicals  conducted during class time- making bath bombs, investigating hydrogels, making glues!… This term some STEM club members have extended their project work and we are looking forward to attending Scifest in June- watch this space! Looking forward to a new set of enthusiastic Yr8 pupils come September.
