Hundreds of schoolchildren from across Northern Ireland and beyond flocked to Belfast’s Waterfront Hall today (Friday June 9) to explore the world of science and engineering.

The Royal Dublin Society’s Primary Science Fair is a showcase of STEM projects by Key Stage 2 Years 4 to 6 and it aims to equip students with science and maths skills, as well as soft skills such as increased confidence, better communication, social interaction and teamwork.

Around 40 schools took part in the fair, which is being held in Northern Ireland for the first time. The Belfast event adds to an already popular and heavily subscribed PSF programme that saw a record 6,000 primary school students participating at fairs in Dublin and Limerick earlier this year.

This year’s Fair was supported by The Irish American Partnership, Belfast City Council and Devenish.

A non-competitive event endorsed by CCEA, the Fair is fully managed by the RDS and aims to engage the entire class in a science-related project.
