Here at Killarney Community College we are very aware of the integral part that science plays in daily life. We offer our students further opportunity to delve into the worlds of biology, physics and chemistry as a hobby and interest through the school’s science club. Science club offers the students an opportunity to engage with their peers and explore ideas and concepts of science that are of particular interest to them. They can carry out investigations and experiments and discuss topics with the help of their science teacher during lunch time science club. They also get the opportunity to take their ideas further and enter competitions such as Scifest, the largest second-level STEM fair programme in Ireland.
