Sixth Class recently had the opportunity today to visit the National History Museum on Kildare St. to participate to learn about the peatlands of Ireland, their preserving nature and the artefacts discovered in them. It was incredibly interesting. To find out more about the artefacts plase visit the National Museum’s website below
After the museum, the class visited the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson St. to view the #WomenOnWalls portraits of successful women working in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). These paintings were part of an initiative to increase female participation in these areas through providing more role models for girls in STEM. It was great to hear about the amazing things some Irish women are doing in STEM and hopefully it inspired the girls to pursue more study in these areas in secondary school.
