Pupils in Years 6 and 7 from Macosquin Primary School were making the most of many different STEM opportunities during the last few weeks of their summer term.

Twelve pupils travelled to the RDS Primary Science Fair which was held in Belfast for the first time.

The entire Year 7 class created a project entitled ‘Chain Reaction’ and constructed Marble Runs which were showcased at the science fair being held in the Waterfront Conference Centre.

The judges were suitably impressed as they interviewed and questioned the team about their project.

This was the culmination of a project working in conjunction with Limavady High School and taught the pupils about coding and computer programming.

Well done to all of the Macosquin Primary School pupils who were involved in both projects.
