National Careers Week 2024

We joined Saint Ronan's Primary to show the P7 a lesson in Science.

 

Helen and the team of Year 13's demonstrated and showed them how to take part in experiments to learn the Science behind the lesson!

The student’s learned about adding Iodine to food to find the starch value and also added fizzy water to raisins to see the reaction!

 

Well done to all who took part we hope you enjoyed it.

Post 16 Leadership Programme

The Post-16 Science Leadership programme began in September 2021 under the direction and wonderful support of the Science Technician, Helen Mulligan.

This programme was offered to post-16 pupils as part of their enrichment. Eight pupils completed a Science Leadership Folder on Safety within the lab, conducted risk assessments and completed research tasks.

 

The pupils were given the opportunity to further develop their science skills and knowledge in the preparation and clearing of Science experiments, to "work behind the scenes" in a busy Science Department and assist younger Science pupils during class activities.


The programme not only helped develop pupil confidence as Scientists but improved their chances of a University place in a Science field when completing their UCAS forms.

Taking Science Outdoors

11KR had a great morning in the outdoor classroom of Crom estate Wednesday 9th June.

 

They were joined by Robyn Livingstone- Environment Educational Officer from Lough Erne Partnership and Anna from Bug life Society.

 

The pupils caught all sorts of interesting bugs using sweep nets and these were identified suing an app.

 

The pupils really enjoyed the experience, and the photographs provide a flavour of the activities they were involved in.

In preparation for planting seedlings, the Science Leadership team under the direction of Helen spent plenty of time and effort ensuring the allotment bed was in perfect condition for growth.

Taking Science Outdoors

9KM thoroughly enjoyed learning about a recent Science topic by bringing it to the great outdoors.

 

The pupils completed quadrats in the school field to assess the percentage cover of plants and the number of slow-moving animals.
