AyrHill GNI ‘Our Universe’, a primary school science education programme delivered by Gas Networks Ireland in partnership with Junior Achievement Ireland (JAI), has arrived in Donegal. Exploding the myth that science is difficult, Our Universe delivers interactive and practical science based lessons to 6th class primary students. Ayr Hill National School, Ramelton will be the first school in Donegal to participate in the programme which, on an annual basis, involves over 5,000 primary school students nationwide.

Our Universe is designed to encourage students to continue with science as they transition to second level and each year over 200 volunteers from organisations around the country will have the opportunity to get involved in the programme. Volunteers are recruited and trained by JAI to facilitate the in-classroom programme, which is an integral part of Gas Networks Ireland’s commitment to fostering students’ interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).
