An Engineer Visits 4th Class
Brendan from Intel visited our 3 fourth classes on Friday 4th March. The topics explored: 'Insulation and conservation of energy' coincided nicely with our 'Green Action Day' which was held on Tuesday 8th March. Brendan posed an important real life problem 'How do we keep our hot drinks hot!?!?' Once the theory was reviewed the children set about designing their own insulation solutions with very promising results.

Engineers' Week in Sallins NS
Our 2nd and 3rd classes were lucky to have two engineers in from Intel to help with designing bridges. The children learned a lot about designing bridges using a metre stick, 2 chairs, straws, string and a toy car. They also learned the value of working together as a team.
