Young Scientist Awards Need Supporting

14 January, 2011 - by Caitríona Ruane

Sinn Féin Education Minister Caitriona Ruane has congratulated all those schools who entered The Young Scientist of the Year Awards and wished all those who reached the final the best of luck.

Ms Ruane stated,

“The Young Scientist of the Year Awards is an excellent opportunity for schools right across the island of Ireland to exhibit the talents of their pupils in this field.

“As Education Minister I have been at the fore of promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects and it is good to see more and more schools participating.  This is an indication that our strategy of promoting STEM is having an affect on pupils and teachers alike.

“This year is the highest number of schools that have entered the competition ad I would encourage all schools to continue to support this competition by entering next year

“I wish all the schools reaching the final all the best but I firmly believe that each and every school that enters this competition is a winner
