Curious Minds Award 2024

We are busy working towards 'The Science Foundation of Ireland', Curious Minds Award this year.  Through the SFI Curious Minds programme we aim to develop the innate curiosity of children through a hands-on, inquiry-based approach to STEM learning.  

The Curious Mind Awards were previously known as the Discover Primary Science and Maths Awards.  This year we aim to achieve our fourth award, having previously been awarded DPSM awards in 2019/2020, 2012/2013 and 2006/2007.

We are currently working towards a Gold Curious Minds Award.

Here are some examples of the work we have been engaging in.
