Designing and Making Boats
Engineers Week 2020
For Engineers Week, the pupils took part in a number of construction tasks. They used Knex to build a tall but stable construction. They completed different tasks using snap circuits and designed an electric quiz.
We designed and made catapults in Science. We experimented with different designs to see if we could increase the power and the distance to fire the cotton wool.
Our engineering skills were put to the test as we created drawbots using using electrical components. We connected motors into a simple circuit and watched the drawbots come to life to wiggle and vibrate across the tables.
Visit to Sligo I. T.
3rd and 4th classes from Taunagh N.S. and Ardkeeran N.S. went to Sligo I.T to learn all about engineering. They learned about bridge construction, the power of lasers and how things fly.
