Sixth class went to the RDS primary science fair and displayed our coke investigation and Mission V. We built a virtual RDS on mission v . We made a prediction room to display our graphs. We also made an investigation room where we took pictures of the objects and put them on the wall. In the next room we have our results.on different coloured tables. In our conclusions room we recorded which soft drink was the best cleaner.In our further investigation room we have made life like replicas of how we plan to improve our investigation in the future.At the RDS many people were impressed by our work on mission v and our coke investigation. We won a beautiful trophy and the judge was very impressed by our hard work. We visited many stands at the RDS and were amazed by some of the projects from all over the country. It was a great experience and we would definitely go again.
On the 11 of January 2014 we went to the RDS Primary Science Fair.It was an honour to be invited to exhibit our science project at this prestigious venue. Only three percent of the primary school in Ireland were selected to exhibit their projects at the RDS . At the end of the day the adjudicators gave us a plaque and a certificate. The adjudicators wrote on the certificate that we were a well mannered and knowledgeable class and that our presentation and layout were both excellent. They were also impressed by our virtual RDS that we created on mission V. It was a great achievement for sixth class and everyone really enjoyed their day at the RDS Primary Science Fair.
