PostHeaderIcon Junior Einsteins Science Show and A1

3rd Class and their teacher Ms Feighery were thrilled to attend the Junior Einsteins Science Show in the Ilac Library on Wednesday 21st November. It was a wonderful opportunity  to observe and experience lots of science.  We learned how to make two types of slime and used a plasma ball to light lightbulbs. We also got to use a Van de Graaf generator which creates static electricity. We even got to shoot giant smoke rings at each other with fabulous giant Smoke Cannons, which was fantastic fun until we set off the smoke detector! On the way home we were given Science Packs with lots of experiments we can try at home.  We had a great day and love Science!!!

We welcomed members of the local garda force to come in and say hello to the boys and girls in the school. They even brought their community support van for the children to have a look inside. Have a look at some of the fun in the photos below.
