#Messagesfor6thClass

Children’s writer, Sarah Webb has invited well known people to record short inspirational videos for 6th class students to mark the end of their school year. Writers, actors, sports people and scientists have all come on board to help the 6th class of 2020 graduate in style (in partnership with Children's Books Ireland).

Engineers Week full of STEM activities

 

We started of the week by making a 'Kicking Machine". The class had to come up with designs that would launch the ball into a cup which was 12" away. Most of them were successful.

 

Next the class were assigned a STEM homework project. Using recycled or home materials, they had to either create a boat that floated or a rocket that stood in launch position. They only had 2 days to design and build them and the end results really blew me away, AND all the boats floated!

 

Finally we engaged in an egg challenge. They had to build a safety container that would protect the egg from cracking when dropped from 2 meters. All were successful the first time round, then we removed some layers of insulation and the safety containers weren't so successful.  

 

All in all, it was a great week, full of laughs, persistence, successful projects and admirable teamwork. Well done guys!
