Science week – Transition Years visit Biopharmachem


Transition Year students visited Biopharmachem Ireland (BPCI)  as part of Science week. Students were invited in conjunction with the Cork Training Centre Biopharma Facility to participate in their Smart Futures Science week activity.

Smart Futures is a Government initiative, supported by Science Foundation Ireland, which works with industry, research and education partners to promote STEM careers to post-primary students in Ireland.

The objective is to grow awareness and improve perceptions of what people working in STEM do and what skills they use/require thus enabling students to make informed choices regarding subjects and career paths.

Maths week

As part of Maths Week 2016 some of our first year students visited Blackrock Observatory. Here, they attended a Math-a-Magic workshop with Dr Fernando Blasco, followed by a show in the planetarium and a computerised gaming experience called “Cosmos at the Castle”. The day was enjoyed by all.
