Kinvara N.S. has been awarded the Plaque of STEM Excellence by Science Foundation Ireland for the 6th year running. The Discover Primary Science and Maths Award aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public. The award is co-ordinated across the school by Ms. Marie Kelly. The hard work and preparation by teachers means that the children can experience science experiments in their own classrooms. Children at Kinvara N.S. have the opportunity to engage in activities and events run at a national and European level. We participate in Science Week, Maths Week, EU Code Week, Engineering Week and Space Week as well as many more. We often have visitors to the school who hold workshops for individual classes and every year our Sixth Class present a STEM Showcase to the whole school.
For the past two years we have presented our Log of Evidence by creating a website. You can view our past entries by clicking the links below:
