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.
Congratulations to Charlie Norje 8D, Molly Hannaway 8D, David Donnell 9A and Katie House 9B
