Introduction

CrestThe project we have been working on for the past year and a half has been to create a CD ROM that would be suitable for use in teaching science to first year students. We are an all-girls, post primary, secondary school and we felt that we would be able to use our skills to increase the use of IT to promote the uptake of science in our school both at junior and leaving certificate level. We have always been a forward-looking school and we felt that ICT skills in the school, among both staff and students, would increase dramatically if we had a particular project to work on. In order to make this project successful we decided to use a multimedia approach that would involve the co-operation of staff and students from all parts of the school community. Students from all years were involved and teachers from all disciplines, not just science, were involved in the design and production of our CD ROM.
