Ms Walsh’s fourth class took part in the Primary Science Fair at the RDS on Saturday, 13th January.
The RDS Primary Science Fair showcases STEM investigations (science, technology, engineering and maths) undertaken by 4th-6th class children. With a core focus on children’s skills development, it brings together teachers, parents and students to showcase class projects, share experiences and learn from each other. The primary science Fair takes place alongside the BT Young Scientist Exhibition.
The fourth class pupils, teachers and parents had a great day at the fair. The children had studied how cranes work and built a number of model cranes from recyclable materials. Thank you to Fergal, Jodie’s grandad for building us a crane from wood.
The pupils impressed the judges with their knowledge and enthusiasm about cranes and they also taught the judges some Gaeilge!
During the day in the RDS the children had an opportunity to experience some presentations and films on STEM related subjects. They visited a number of exhibitions and really enjoyed the experience.
Well done to all and a big thank you to Ms Walsh and Ms 0′ Brien for facilitating this work with the children. .
