There was great excitement recently as we had STEM week in Hansfield. All classes were busy designing, experimenting and having fun as the children carried out experiments, undertook lego and and robotic challenges, presented at the STEM showcase, interviewed engineers, scientists and zoologists through video links, as well as participating in workshops by scientists from Trinity College and DCU. Many thanks to everyone for taking the time out of their busy schedules to make this a memorable week for the children in our school.
A lot of work is carried out by all classes at Hansfield in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) subjects. Much fun is had with them too! Among the exciting learning activities so far this year were science experiments, a coding and robotic club, visits to Trinity College and Hansfield ETSS for science workshops, interviews with scientists, visits from scientists, maths trails, maths week activities, tadpole watch and a hatching project.
In fact, we are so proud of our achievements that we decided to show off our work to parents and the wider community by holding a STEM showcase in April this year. The children did a terrific job at explaining their class projects. Our expert photographer Maximilian Cope took some super pictures on the day…….
Here are some photos of our STEM showcase!
