STEM for Primary School Students

STEMtacular is an initiative set up to promote engagement with science in Leitrim, Roscommon, Longford, Cavan and Sligo.

The brainchild of UL graduate, Louise Gallagher-- who along with her husband Michael completed the BA in Biological Sciences with Concurrent Teacher Education in 2008—it was set up to allow students to engage in workshops and fun activities without the need to travel.

She explained: “I started STEMtacular as I had read a study that said County Leitrim had one of the lowest levels of engagement with science subjects in its schools. I wanted to provide students in Leitrim and the surrounding counties with the opportunity to engage with science in a fun way. Until STEMtacular, there were no similar opportunities for primary students to participate in science events unless they travelled to Dublin. The distance and high travel costs inhibited a lot of schools in our region from participating in those events.”
