Science Month - U.C.C. Prof. Robbie Butler visits Scoil an Athar Tadhg.

On Monday 23 rd January, Dr. Robbie Butler from UCC came

to talk to 5 th & 6 th Class about Science and Social Economics.

He was explaining some of his observations on the 2022

Soccer World Cup. It was very interesting to hear and see

all the facts and information he managed to collect over the

64 matches. 5 th & 6 th class learned a lot about the extra

time added to each half of the match and the children tried

to figure out reasons why there is more extra time in some

games than others.

Dr. Butler spoke to the children about his job as a lecturer/

scientist. He teaches approximately 200 students per week

and he estimates that he has taught around 10,000 people

from all around the world. He has even taught some

teachers from Scoil an Athar Tadhg! The main aspect of his

job since 2006 is to complete experiments and research

different topics. He spends a lot of his time researching.

He loves his job and he said ‘I feel like I’ve never worked a

day of my life!’

After this talk, the children learned more about social

economics and how people think. It was great having Dr.

Robbie Butler visit our school.
