Primary STEM Challenge Week - March 2010

Over 50 primary schools took part in the annual Primary STEM Challenge at a number of venues in the SELB Board area over a four day period. This year’s Challenge was the construction of an operational windmill capable of rotating into the wind, using the range of materials provided.

A big thank you to all the teachers and schools for the tremendous effort and enthusiasm they showed, and especially to those schools who acted as hosts for the competition.

Well done to all the pupils who took part and worked so enthusiastically to produce a wide range of innovative designs.

Congratulations to the winners of the SELB heats as follows:
The Armstrong Primary School, Armagh
St Mary’s Primary School, Banbridge
Roan St Patrick’s Primary School, Dungannon
Richmount Primary School, Portadown
Our Lady’s Primary School, Tullysaran

These schools now go forward to represent the SELB and compete in the final on Monday 21st June at W5, Belfast.
