Step 5 - STEM Showcase

PJP STEM WEEK 2019-2020


In November PJP hosted it's very own STEM WEEK! 

During this week a range of fun Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical activities took place. 


One of the highlights of the week was the STEM CITY CHALLENGE!

Each class in the school worked co-operatively to create their own buildings using recyclable materials such as boxes, lids, foil, bottles, tubing and much more! 

Two to three creations from each class were then chosen to be part of the PJP STEM CITY!


Check out the final display assembled in the foyer for all to admire!


I most definitely think we have some future architects and engineers in the making!

Here is a closer look at some of the work completed on our

STEM CITY Projects!





During the week a range of challenges were held across the school! 

Everyone really enjoyed the Tower Challenge!

Each class worked in teams to try and build the tallest tower using only paper clips and paper. 




During the week some really interesting visitors in the area of STEM came to the school. 

Some classes had visits from IBM employees! 

Others had Scratch tutorials from DCU students and our 6th classes took part in an Hour of Code !




Overall, our first PJP STEM WEEK was a huge success! 

We're already looking forward to next year!
