S.cience T.renier E.ngineering M.aths

Mr. Trenier is multi-talented mountain of a man. His Cavan neighbours know about the range and depth of his rodeo talents: from steer roping through steer wrestling to steer riding, he has mastered them all.   We all know him as TY Co-Ordinator supreme (more on that later!).  And give him a white coat and stick him in a laboratory and another facet of Mr. T. emerges: Master of all STEM!

The Junior School Science Club (Tue. @ 3:45) is quickly learning about this side of his skill set.  Drop by the lab on Tuesday afternoons and you will here all sorts of solutions bubbling, cathodes emitting and artificial intelligences lamenting the absence of a soul.  But don’t be afraid!  It is all in the name of Science and Mr. T. follows the strictest of safety protocols.  This Tuesday, the Junior kids fashioned their own simple robots and set them free (briefly) to draw the perfect circle.  ‘Perfect circles’ sound quite Mathsy to us, and guess what?  On Thursdays, Mr. Trenier runs an After-School Maths Club, too!
