missionv.ieThe MissionV project, supported by the National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE), is the first in Ireland to use 3D modelling software and programming tools to teach part of the primary school curriculum.  It is innovative in the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Education & Maths) subjects while demonstrating the practical applications of architecture, geometry and computer programming.  We are excited to be one of twenty primary schools in Ireland selected to take part in the project.

With the support of Discover Science and Engineering each school involved will participate in the virtual National Science Week Event 2011.  Over the coming weeks the children will have the opportunity to design, build and program an interactive model under the theme The Chemistry of Life.  Their models will then be exhibited in the MissionV Learning Hub, a dedicated virtual exhibition hall during National Science Week which begins on November 13th, 2011.

In order to work on the project at home pupils should download Impudence here and also the basic computer programming package Scratch for OpenSim here.
