For many years, our Clare Education Centre has been promoting the teaching of ‘Science’ in Barefield N.S. and in other schools around Co. Clare. The promotion of active learning as well as co-operative learning were the foundation on which this promotion was built.

STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics.  Pupils in our Ranganna III-IV classes explore all these subjects through their participation in this STEAM project.

Michael Browne leads this project on behalf of Clare Education Centre. Ms. Rena McMahon is currently leading this project in our school with her Rang III-IV pupils.

The programme is based around the use of everyday materials to explore science questions and to experiment in order to find solutions.

Our Rang III-IV pupils are really enjoying themselves.
