Ballincollig 305pm Gaelscoil Ui Riordain - Autumn 2019 Term - Junior Group

Please note: This club is only for children attending Gaelscoil Ui Riordain. We have another club in Ballincollig, which is open to all children.

Our weekly STEAM clubs for primary kids are jam-packed with exciting, educational activities. It’s not just a LEGO club, a tech club, an art club or a science club. It’s everything combined, ensuring children get hands-on with new materials and projects every week. There is nothing quite like Designer Minds!

Designer Minds Autumn 2018 Educational Fun and Games


Coming up for our Autumn 2019 term…

  • Young Scientists will learn about chemistry (polymers and slime), physics (electric circuits) and biology (human anatomy).
  • For the Techies, we'll introduce coding using various friendly robots and gadgets and children will also learn about music technology.
  • We’ve got lots of exciting Engineering and teamwork challenges using LEGO and k'nex.
  • During our Art projects this term, we’ll show kids how to create electric Christmas cards, explore the world of augmented reality and we'll also expose them to the wonderful world of creative coding.
  • We'll use Minecraft to make Maths fun!
  • … plus much, much more!

If, after the first club, your child decides that they don't want to continue, then let us know within 3 days of the first club, and we will refund your payment, minus €12 for the first club. That means that you can try a club, absolutely risk free!

This is the junior group page for children in 1st to 3rd class. You can register a child in 4th to 6th class, by visiting our senior group page.
