This year, 81,537 primary school students were involved in the program nationally, and with 419 schools across Ireland achieving a Curious Minds Award. Schools in every county participated in the awards this year, including 25 from Limerick.

“Many future STEM career students are currently in our primary schools – from scientists to engineers and astronauts. These students are the future of Limerick, they will grow, learn and work in jobs we haven’t even heard of yet”, said Limerick Minister Patrick O’Donovan.
