  • Where do measurements come from?
  • Why do we get different results when we measure the same distance?

NEW STEM TEACHER

Carla Moore

My name is Carla Moore. I am from Derry City and studied the four-year Bachelor of Education degree, specialising in Art and Design, at St. Mary’s University College in Belfast. I have been a mainstream class teacher in a large primary school in Belfast for last three years and have now moved to Dublin. So far, I have been very impressed by the boy’s curiosity, knowledge and interest in current world affairs. I am deeply passionate about enquiry based, child-led learning and I can’t wait to extend the boy’s thinking and problem-solving skills further as their new STEM coordinator this year.
