CBS Roscommon celebrated Science week last week from the 8th to 15th November with a number of events taking place in the school. Science Week provides people across the country with the opportunity to ask questions, explore the science behind our everyday lives, and consider the future we want and the role science can play in helping us create and understand our shared future. This year marks the 25th anniversary celebrations of Science Week.
This year the theme for Science Week is Choosing our Future, focusing on how science can improve our lives for today and in the future. For Science Week 2020, the CBS wanted to show science can positively impact our future and help us shape the world we want to live in.
This year, it was felt that students recognised the role of science in our everyday lives even more acutely, with the spread of COVID-19 and our response to it. They have become all too familiar with the role of science in preventing the spread of the virus, as well as providing a vaccine.
Students carried out fun experiments and activities in class, and First Years participated in a table quiz too to mark the event. Many thanks to the Science Department for putting together Science week.
