This year we had a couple of trips for engineering week-5th Class went to Epic museum to learn about Irish emigrant scientists and engineers whilst 4th class took a trip in the rain to visit Marsh’s Library to partake in the 10 station challenges-both were great fun!

In school all other classes had an engineering workshop with Ms Kelly to design and create. Junior Infants made helicopters, Senior Infants made string telephones, 1st Class made a spinning cup flyer, 2nd class made boats from play dough and then with aluminum foil-the foil ones were much better! 3rd Class designed and made a dishwater whilst 6th used the “curiosity box” on electrical circuits to make a light-up card.
