Sixth Class had lots of fun during Science Week. We conducted an experiment to show that “Air Exerts Pressure”. The card stayed put on some containers but there were lots of giggles when one or two experiments didn’t quite work out!
We also investigated aerodynamics and made paper gliders and aeroplanes. Some children adjusted their models in an attempt to make them go further. This is what engineers often do when testing out their new products and designs. We had some travel well over 8 metres!
Many of us also designed posters for the “ESB Stay Safe, Stay Clear” competition. This competition promotes the importance of staying safe outdoors when near electricity poles and overhead wires.
