The children in 4th class Room 24 were working with speed and pulleys recently with the Lego WeDo 2.0 materials. they investigated how changing the wheels, adding weighted bricks, changing the pulleys etc. might affect the speed and movement of their racing car. They also added motion sensors to con
The children in Rooms 17 & 18 have been working with the Lego WeDo Science and Engineering materials over the last few weeks. They have built and programmed moving satellites, windmills and Milo the Science Rover.
The children in 5th class Room 27 have been busy making parachutes this week while working on their STEM Egg drop activity. They have been investigating and experiementing about the the effects of air resistence and gravity on their parachute.First they dropped an egg on its own. Then they tried ou
Take a look at some of the fantastic projects completed by Ms. G. Fay’s 5th class over the last few weeks. They built and programmed Cooling Fans, Moving Satellites, Milo the Science Rover and other scice projects looking at pulling, speed, robust structure, plants and pollinators and preventing flo
The children in Room 7 have been working in the Hub over the last few weeks in their pods. They have been completing lots of different coding activities with the Bee Bots.
Take a look at some of the coding projects 5th and 6th class have been working on recently.6th class, Mr. Lysaght have been working with Spheros, Hour of code activities and Minecraft coding.5th class, Mr. Harrison have been working with the WeDo Lego materials to create some excellent guided proje
6th class participated in a live on-line science event hosted by The Rediscovery Centre.They investigated what happens when you add acids and bases into the juices from a red cabbage.
Some Valentine’s Day coding with spheros in our STEM room today……
The children in Mr. Harrison’s 5th class are working with Lego WeDo materials to create and code their own models. They have built spinning fans, moving satellites and Milo the science rover. They have also being working with motion sensors. Take a look at what they have made.
The children in Mr. Lysaght’s 6th class have been completing some coding activities this week. Take a look at some of the Google logo’s they designed using scratch code.
The 5th class children in Room 25 are working with WeDo Lego education kits to build and code models. Take a look at some of their models and fantastic coding in the video below:
The children in Room 8 have been learning to code with BeeBots over the last few weeks. Take a look at some of their activities below:
Take a look at the STEM projects completed by Room 28 5th class over the last few weeks. The children have been working in their pods with the WeDo 2.0 materials from Lego Education to build and code their models. They have also been working to control their models with motion sensors.
Some of the girls in our school may be interested in free scratch coding workshops. These are being run by Designer Minds from 8th until 16th November as part of Science week 2021.Further information can be found at the link below. https://designerminds.ie/science-week-2021Dojomór are also holding f
The remaining 6th classes took part in virtual STEM sessions with the DreamSpace team today. It was a fantastic experience for all the children. They learned lots about the world of STEM, mixed reality, artificial intelligence and also coded with MicroBits. Lots of complicated code was written and t
Two of our 6th classes took part in virtual coding and STEM sessions with Corey from the DreamSpace team today. It was an amazing experience for all the children and they learned so much about the world of STEM, coded with microbits and even designed a rock, paper, scissors game themselves!Thanks t
Take a look at some behind the scenes photos of RTE and Virgin Media news crews visiting our school for the CyberSafe kids report.
Some fantastic coding in 6th class this week!
Well done to Mia Horgan in 4th class who made it through to the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge finals during TechWeek in April.She did great!The Bebras Computing Challenge introduces computational thinking to students, by allowing them to solve interactive tasks online. It is run in over 50
Take a look at the children in 2nd class Room 12 learning to code with Blue Bots.
Mr. MacCann’s 4th class took part in the Bebras Computational Thinking Challenge earlier this year. Today it we received the exciting news that Mia Horgan was a winner in the challenge and she will now go forward to take part in the national final as part of TechWeek 2021.Well done Mia! And well do
