Our engineering week was very successful this year with all the girls involved. 

Junior Infants made a string telephone and had great fun talking to each other,

Senior Infants made paper helicopters which ther decorated too,

1st Class created a tall tower with marshmallows and cocktail sticks,

2nd class learned about absorption with sugar cubes, coloured water and different materials to keeep the water out.

3rd Class followed written instructions to design and make a spin dryer with cups and string that was then tested outdoors,

4th Class had a whole day of engineering activities, too many to name, but the photo above shows one of their constructions. In addition, they visited Marsh's Library to do the workshop they run every year.

5th Class built a water tower with Ms Kelly and also had a visit from 2 female ESB engineers with whom they made a parachute

6th Class used the STEM in a box kit to make catapults.
