About Brain Busters

An Post, with support from INTO, has a 37 year history of promoting literacy and learning with generations of Irish students. This year, we are excited to relaunch our new school programme An Post Brain Busters.

An Post Brain Busters Challenge 2021

This is one of the most exciting educational programmes to hit schools in the past 10 years, and has been designed by teachers collaborating with expert contributors including legendary mathematician Dr Finn Macleod, scientist Niamh Shaw, and author Oisín McGann.

Students put their literacy and numeracy skills to use to solve exciting challenges, as well as developing their 21st Century capabilities such as problem solving and technology.

An Post Brain Busters 2021 is open to 5th and 6th class primary school students and Junior Cycle (1st and 2nd year) secondary school students.
