Engineering 2019/2020

Designing and Making Mazes

1st & 2nd class worked on some tricky mazes and tried to run a marble through them. They had great fun.

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 moving vehicle. They also completed different tasks using Blue Bots and Photons.

2018/2019

Catapults

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.

Drawbots

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.
