Maths Week

The  idea for Maths Week originated in 2005 with Sheila Donegan and Eoin  Gill, directors of Calmast STEM Outreach Centre at Waterford Institute  of Technology. After several years working hard to promote STEM  (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths), they came to the  realisation that mathematics was the foundation underpinning all of STEM  and in order to increase uptake among the public, attitudes towards  maths had to change.

In  St. John's our annual Maths Week is organised by Ms. Mc Elroy and incorporates lots of fun activities  including Maths Trails, Maths Table Quizzes (Junior and Senior), guest  speakers, problem solving activities and Izac Cubes. The emphasis is on  fun and engaging activities that explore Maths in a less traditional  setting.
