Did you know we are an accredited Discover Centre? Many of our Primary School workshops can be used towards the SFI Discover Science and Maths Awards. It’s a great chance for your school to get recognition for all your STEM work.
Registration for the Awards closes on 20th March so you still have time!
Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science & Maths Awards
Last year SFI presented 620 schools with SFI Discover Science & Maths (DPSM) Awards and they hope even more schools will apply for the recognition they deserve in 2020. As well as recognition, the Award brings a range of benefits; it provides a structure for STEM work, raises the profile of science in the school and among parents and increases whole school collaboration.
As a result of participating in the SFI Discover Science & Maths Awards:
- 89% teachers reported an increase in school science activities
- 81% teachers reported that parents are more aware of science activities in the school
- 79% teachers reported an increase in science engagement at the whole-school level
- 75% teachers reported a stronger sense of team-spirit amongst teachers in their schools
- 67% teachers reported that they are now more comfortable teaching science
