Science Week at Our Lady’s RC Primary School
8th March – 12th March
– Born Curious.
During the week we learnt about key scientific figures in the science world with a particular focus on women scientists and their impact on our understanding of the world. The pupils found out about the life of these scientists, their scientific ideas and explored some practical aspects of the key discoveries through collaboration, team work and discussion. Each class had a woman scientist to study and carry out a range of activities and experiments based on this scientist’s key achievements.
Girls and women are curious, intelligent, persistent, and bold: it's no wonder they can be such good scientists! While women in STEM have fought prejudice for years — much of which still lingers today — they've also made important discoveries, invented world-changing things, and helped humanity make great leaps in our understanding of our planet, the universe, and more.
I hope you enjoyed reading about our learning and feel inspired and curious about the world.
