Science Week 2020
From the 9th to the 13th of November 2020, we celebrated Science Week in our school. All classes
completed a number of science themed activities.
The children of Junior and Senior Infants, investigated colour mixing and also explored magnets.
In 1st and 2nd class, the children participated in a science themed quiz and carried out a very
fun science experiment where they observed their gummy bears growing in water.
In 3rd and 4th class, the children explored sound and how sound travels through a variety of
materials. They completed an investigation to determine whether of not an egg can bounce and
also investigated bacteria growth on bread(unwashed hands, washed hands and bread wiped on
a table top).
In 5th and 6th class, the children learned about famous scientists and their inventions and
discoveries and completed a science themed table quiz in groups. They also worked in teams as
they designed and created a house for the 4th Little Pig on a budget.
Below are a selection of photographs from the week.
