Science Week 2020

Science week took place from Nov 8th-15th in St. Brigid's. The classes engaged in lots of Science activities during the week. Junior Infants did some cool science experiments. Their favourite one was the rainbow skittle experiment. They also learned all about their senses (smell, taste, touch, sight and hearing) and even got to taste some sweet, bitter, sour and salty foods.

Senior infants learned all about our solar system and the planets. They made really interesting space mobiles out of paper mache and also got to make slime. They also had great fun coding using Scratch Junior on the iPads and using the BeeBots.

First Class did lots of investigating using magnets. They tested a variety of materials to see whether they were magnetic or not. 

Second Class did wonderful projects based on the solar system and the planets. During the week the girls engaged in coding activities using the WeDo Lego kits and the BeeBots. They explored shadows and discovered how to make 'finger shadow puppets'. They also investigated different types of materials to see if they were opaque or transparent. 

Third Class engaged in a 'WeDo Workshop' where they coded their Lego robot 'Milo' to move. This involved the girls working together as a team and to problem solve. The girls thoroughly enjoyed using the kits and hope to use them again in the future.

Fourth Class did a very cool experiment. They investigated if the mass or the length of the pendulum affected the pendulum period (how long it takes the pendulum to swing back to the beginning). They used three different weights of varying mass and three different lengths of string. They discovered that the mass didn't affect the time taken for the pendulum to return to the beginning and that the length of string affected the pendulum period. 

4th-6th class also held a 'Science Day' were they showcased many exciting experiments in front of their peers. The girls put a lot of work into their experiments, researching ideas and gathering materials for the day. All classes thoroughly enjoyed Science Day and got to experience many wonderful experiments such as 'elephant toothpaste, lava lamps, dancing raisins' and lots more.
