Sustainable Energy Workshop

On Wednesday 4th October, the 5th Classes took part in a Science workshop run by Sustainable Energy Ireland. They learned all about the energy we use, fossil fuels, climate change and renewable energy.

They took part in experiments including the Alka-Seltzer pop where they saw how chemical energy is released and the potato battery experiment where they found out about amounts of chemical energy stored in food.

It was a very informative and enjoyable day.
