The Discover Primary Science and Maths Programme (DPSM) is part of Science Foundation Ireland’s Education and Public Engagement Programme, which aims to increase interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) among students, teachers and members of the public.

In Faughart Community National School this year we are currently working towards achieving a Plaque of STEM Excellence for deeper engagement with STEM, whole school involvement and external science engagement.

There are many steps that we have all have to complete to achieve this award.
