PostHeaderIcon Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library

On February 26th, Ms. Mc Donagh’s 4th class took part in an event to mark Engineers Week at Marsh’s Library. The children got to tackle ten different engineering stations in small teams leading through the library. They were challenged in construction, mechanisms, simple circuits and forces. They also tried to identify mystery objects to gain bonus points.

It was a really interesting and enjoyable day and we learned lots, both about engineering and the library itself. Did you know that an Irish engineer, John Philip Holland designed the first submarine?

Check out the slideshow to see some of the challenges that the children faced.

Gardiner Street School held its annual Science and Maths Open Day with even more fantastic experiments being carried out this year.     Thanks to Ms. Kelly who organised the event.  The children not only hosted experiments at STATIONS, but also had the opportunity to see each other’s experiments. Mr. Shovlin introduced programming at his STATION.  The children had great fun programming the Bee Bot around a map!     Parents attended in great numbers.   Some brave parents volunteered to be blindfolded for a taste test in Ms. Doyle’s class.   Thanks for your support.  Well Done everybody!

Science For Fun will be starting soon and we are looking for parents, grandparents, aunties and uncles to help out. 3rd class will be participating but you don’t need to have a child in those classes to help out. All help is welcome and appreciated. If you think you could join in the fun and help the children or if you have any questions, please speak to Laragh in the Parent’s Room.

The sessions will be on Wednesdays 9 to 10am from the 4th of October to the 15th of November excluding the 1st November (6 sessions in total).
