Science at Loreto College

Loreto College, St. Stephen’s Green has a long history of excellence in the world of science, with participation in Physics, Chemistry and Biology at Leaving Cert level substantially above the national norm.

To foster this interest, involvement in science beyond the classroom is encouraged. Students at all age levels enter the Young Scientist competition and meet weekly with a Science teacher who acts as guide and mentor throughout the process.  Successes in this prestigious competition have been numerous throughout the years.

In the latter part of the year students are encouraged to enter the Scifest Competition, where again, they can showcase the fruits of their scientific exploration and research.
