Sir Hans Sloane Centre from its very beginning, before all else was brought about, has worked with the two local schools and the primary school at Derryboye. Projects included: Engineering water filters from recycled plastic bottles, the Science of Butterflies and making paper butterflies. The Science of Bubbles- giant size with children and teenagers inside!!.
Children from 6 different secondary schools were loaned the Microbit credit card sized computers to design their own projects. Our aim is to become a digital hub and work with schools to engage students in a great variety of work experience- history, science, crafts and trades. Schools and pupils should get in touch for more details .
