Team of the Week Goes to Scoil Chrónáin Rang 3!
Posted on 22 February 2016

Congratulations to Scoil Chrónáin Rang 3 from Ireland for winning this week's Global Team of the Week award!

The ExpertExperimentor from Dublin are making great progress with 5 completed challenges including Thirsty Paper and Clean That Water Up! We love that they are teaching everyone a few words of Irish with their newsreels

For one of their challenges, they started off with the class survey and then used the answers to make posters. These posters will be hung up in the school and will add to all of the schools paper awareness... Well done to the ExpertExperimentor team and keep up the good work Water Explorers!!!


Completing Challenges will help you climb the Water Explorer leaderboard. In addition, your project work can be used to support CREST and Eco-Schools Awards.

CREST Award (British Science Association)
Each year, over 32,000 CREST Awards are undertaken by 11-to-19-year-olds, giving them opportunities to explore real-world science, technology, engineering and maths projects in an exciting way.

Use Water Explorer Challenges as a basis for a CREST Bronze Award. To get the Award, you’ll need to spend at least 10 hours on your project. Find out more about CREST Bronze Award here.
