Pupils invited to enter Science Blast
Children from St Peter's NS in Bray were at the launch of ESB Science Blast last week, with showcases to take place next year in Dublin, Limerick and Belfast.
Pupils from fourth to sixth class are encouraged to get involved in a non-competitive education programme investigating the science behind a simple question. The Dublin event will take place in the RDS on March 6 and 7. The submission deadline is November 30.
Science Blast will inspire entire classrooms with the wonders of STEM. Nourishing 21st century skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving and creativity. The programme will feature science shows, tailor-made for eight to 12 year olds. Each participating school will receive €75 towards transport.
To take part, classes must think of a simple question, something that they can investigate by predicting, measuring, counting or observing. Students then investigate their question, using core skills from the curriculum, before displaying their work and presenting their findings at a fun-filled event. Visit esbscienceblast.com to sign up.
