Science Chat – Episode 16: STEM and the Leaving Certificate Results

by webmaster on September 2, 2010

In Science Chat Episode 16, I chat with Michelle Dunne about the recent reports into the failure rates in the Leaving Certificate in the Science subjects and Maths in particular. For those of my non-Irish listeners, the Leaving Certificate is the exam which is sat by students at the end of their secondary level education in Ireland, and forms the basis for selection for third level colleges and universities.
Michelle is a chemistry teacher in St Joseph’s College in Lucan, Dublin. Michelle has been successful over the years with her students in the BT Young Scientists Exhibition and was one of the ambassadors chosen to travel on the Dublin Science Bus to Turin in the summer.
