Engineers Week 5th Class

5th class in Room 7 have been working hard in preparation for the Globe project. We are investigating air pollution around our school. We are waiting for the results of our investigation from the research laboratory. To help us with our investigation we decided to construct a wind vane and a wind anemometer. We worked together in groups to plan and construct our chosen project. We’re looking forward to using our constructions as part of the Globe project.

Junior Infants Science Week 2013

In Junior Infants we listened to the story of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ during science week. We decided to do an experiment to check the materials that the houses in the story were made from. We also made houses using potatoes and paint.

Our experiment
What material is the strongest?

What we did:
We built three houses using

  • Straw
  • Lollipop sticks
  • Blocks

We checked which material was the strongest by blowing the houses down.

Our result:
The house make with blocks was the strongest. The house made with straws was the weakest.
