Discover Primary Science and Maths Programme (DPSM)
Pupils of Scoil Fhionáin have taken part in the Discover Primary Science and Maths awards. Pupils in all classes take part in various activities relating to science, technology, engineering and maths regularly over the course of the year. We proudly display our many awards in our school.
The Discover Primary Science and Maths Programme (DPSM) (Now known as SFI Curious Minds) is part of Science Foundation Ireland’s Education and Public Engagement Programme, which aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public.
DPSM originated in 2003 with the goal of introducing primary school students to science in a practical, hands-on, enjoyable and interactive way. Since 2010 the programme has been run in conjunction with the European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) Ireland which uses space to inspire and engage young people in science and technology in the world around them.
We are going for an award again this year. Take a look at our 4th-6th class site where we will document some of the activities we do!
