Newbridge College Science Club

Science Club

This September 2015 sees the introduction of our new Science Club. Our lunchtime interactive Science Club gives students a safe environment to learn, explore and discover.

Science Club is a great way to spark a child’s interest in learning. Students can question how or why things work and work towards solutions. A mix of fast and furious demonstrations in addition to hands on experiments will take place.

Students will organise and publish our very own ‘Science Newsletter’ on a number of occasions throughout the year.

Science Club Activities will include the following:
•    Preparation of Science Demonstrations for Newbridge College Open Night
•    Students will take part in hands on experiments, some fast and furious
