Primary Science & Maths Award
The Discover Primary Science and Maths programme (DPSM) is part of Science Foundation Ireland’s (SFI) Discover Programme which aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics among students, teachers and the wider public. The DPSM programme aims to develop creativity in our children, help develop an interest in science, show how important science is to our daily lives and more importantly how much fun science can be! The 5 steps of the programme involves hands-on science investigations from all strands of the Science curriculum, the use of ICT, investigating engineering, using maths skills, inviting science speakers to the school, visiting DPSM Centres and opportunities for the children to present their work to others.
Timoleague NS have achieved this award every year since 2013 and will be applying again this school year. In order to meet the award criteria we are compiling an on-going log of evidence of our science activities and ensuring that the children are actively involved every step of the way.
