Professor desilva and the year 10 pupilsNational Science and Engineering Week was marked in Aquinas with our annual STEM week.  Year 10 pupils were treated to a very entertaining and informative talk by Prof AP Desilva, Professor of Chemistry, Queen’s University, Belfast on his fascinating research into logical molecules has gained him world wide respect and recognition as a brilliant chemist.  This was followed on Friday with the year 8 Thinking Skills event.  As usual the atmosphere was extremely competitive through the question rounds, the picture rounds and finally the “straw tower challenge” which ultimately determined the winners.  On the day, the winning team was Louis Campbell, Eoin Nagel, Piers Reihill, Tony Quigley and Brendan Gallen. Congratulations
