Science week

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This year in St. Mary’s College we had an action packed celebration for Science Week. One of the events in the college saw our first year students taking part in a rocket building workshop. They designed, built and successfully launched their individual rockets. The fuel for the rockets was compressed air with some rockets reaching an incredible distance of over 100 metres. The students also received rulers to help them with their rocket measurements courtesy of Science Foundation Ireland. The event was a huge success in both developing skills for students and also in the promotion of the STEM subjects. Thank you to all the Science Teachers and their hard work[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_media_grid grid_id=”vc_gid:1543179641715-25bcc382-0d60-2″ include=”10660,10663,10659,10666,10657,10668″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
