Science Week 2020
This week is national science week which is promoted by the National Science Foundation, now in its 25th year. Clarecastle National School pupils will be carrying out a range of general science activities throughout the coming week as well as activities that will focus on the key theme for Science Week 2020 which is ‘Science Week – Choosing our Future’. The focus here is on how science can improve our lives in the future, and in the present. Pupils will explore how science can help us to make positive choices that will impact the environment, our health, and our quality of life. Changes based in scientific evidence that we make today can hugely improve our future life, but also right now. The subject matter is broad and will incorporate topics such as the future of work, the future of health and wellbeing and how we will all live in a world where we have had to change and adapt to the challenges facing society. Climate change has not gone away, and now society has had to unite and face the coronavirus disease, COVID-19. Parents are encouraged to continue the discussion and carry out any relevant activities linked to these themes at home.
The science activities that we carry out this week and during the year will be part of our application to gain our third National Science Foundation Plaque of STEM Award. We were delighted to receive our second award during the summer – a great achievement for pupils, staff and the school as a whole.Back to Results
