Take a look at some of their science experiments: Dancing Raisins, Lava Lamps, Coke and Mentos Explosions, Static Electricity with Balloons, Gummy Bears Experiment, Making Levers, Ramps and Surfaces, Drawing Insects, Fire: Oxygen v Carbon Dioxide and Floating and Sinking.
The children in Room 3 Junior Infants have been very busy for Science Week 2020. They completed five activities focusing on floating and sinking, levers and pulleys, ramps, materials and friction, analysing insects and investigating how a candle need O2 to stay lit.
Science week is a little different this year in our school unfortunately but there are lots of exciting activities and experiments still going on in class!
Take a look at what the children in Room 1 have been learning about this week. Working in stations they have explored objects that float or sink. They looked at different insects and counted their legs. They tried to build a wheel barrow. Ramps with different surfaces were also used and the children discovered which surfaces were the best for speed. The children also discovered that flames need oxygen to stay alight!
Well done to our fantastic 5th class pupils who took part in Fridays Young Scientist exhibition in the RDS. They demonstrated their zero emissions robots. Our thanks to Ms. Kane for entering her class in this fantastic event.
