Ir EUSO Silver Medal in Chemistry

Congratulations to a 4th Year student, Bethan Godber, who won a Chemistry silver medal in the Irish EU Science Olympiad. Based on her outstanding Junior Certificate results in Science and Maths, she was invited by the State Examination Commission to participate in the Ir EUSO, a science Olympiad for students aged 16, along with 300 other students across Ireland. She chose to specialise in Chemistry, and sat an exam in DCU on the 1st November 2014. She was placed second and will now be partaking in another round next January where she will be doing practical work. The best 2 students in each category (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) will be chosen to represent Ireland in the EUSO 2015 in Austria. Good Luck Bethan!

scienceweek

The aim of Science Week is to promote the relevance of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in our everyday lives and to demonstrate their importance to the future development of Irish society and to the economy. Science Week is coordinated by SFI Discover, the education-outreach programme of Science Foundation Ireland.


The ISTA Senior Science Quiz regional finals take place this Thursday November 13th in the Limerick Institute of Technology. We have two teams representing St. Joseph’s on the night. These teams are from Leaving Cert students are studying a combination of Biology, Chemistry and/or Physics. The Science department would like to wish the students the very best of luck.

Our first year Science students have been busy recently making posters to highlight awareness of Science Week. The theme of the poster for 2014 is “The Power Of Science”.
The students’ posters are on display around the school this week.
