Science Celebration Day

18th Jun 2018

Pupils in Years 5, 6 and 7 travelled to the University of Ulster Coleraine Campus today, to meet up with our friends from St Eoghan’s and Damhead Primary Schools for a celebration event to round off a very successful year of Shared Education. Scientific Sue delivered an amazing show which taught us about ‘The Science of Dragons’ linked to the book ‘How to Train your Dragon’ by Cressida Cowell. Down in the Biomedical Science Laboratories, Dr Diane showed us how to extract DNA from strawberries. This experiment brought a whole new meaning to the current craze of Squishies! After lunch, students from the university lead nine different sports sessions to get everyone moving and using up lots of energy. Everyone had a thoroughly enjoyable day and we are very grateful to the staff and students at the university who worked so hard to make sure we had such a super celebration event.
