Event Description

A brilliant science event to encourage STEM subject take up in schools, sponsored by EDIC Donegal and Gaeltacht, took place in EDIC Donegal & Gaeltacht Gaoth Dobhair in July. 15 children and their parents engaged with EDIC staff in an exciting & informative science workshop with experimental fun.
These activities are inspired by EU policy of promotion of STEM subjects, which states ‘Statistics that show that people with qualifications in STEM subjects have better chance of employment than those without, and also have good average earnings. inGenious is the European Coordinating Body in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education. It is a joint initiative launched by European Schoolnet and the European Roundtable of Industrialists (ERT) aiming to reinforce young European’s interest in science education and careers and thus address anticipated future skills gaps within the European Union’.
