Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Design is knowing which ones to keep.
Welcome to STEM Kerry! The newly established School Excellence Fund encourages collaboration in the use of digital technology, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), leadership and creativity. It promises to be a very exciting initiative allowing schools and teachers the opportunity to work together and share good practices while focusing on developing the important skills that our children will need to thrive in the future. At the end of the last school year we submitted a digital proposal and we were delighted to announce that it was successful. We were honoured to have our schools represented in UCD at the launch by Minister for Education Richard Bruton of the Schools Excellence Fund (Digital).
We are four schools in Co. Kerry who are working closely with the PDST and Tralee Education Centre to develop a greater interest and understanding of STEM related subjects and professions amongst the pupils and staff of all of our schools.
