Engineers Week in 4th & 6th classes

Despite our short week on account of the snow, Ms.Concannon's 4th class got to experience some fun activities during engineering week. They learned all about gravity and air resistance. They had the challenge of making a parachute for an egg and had great fun working in groups. The aim of the experiment was to ensure that the egg had a 'soft landing'. The girls were very creative in their constructions and had an 'egg-cellent time! Did they pass the test? That is the question...

The girls made catapults out of Lego. They learned all about forces and had to investigate which catapult could fire the longest distance!

6th class had lots of fun with Scratch, a computer program which helps young people learn to think creatively, reason systematically and work collaboratively!
