For G5’s next eggs-periment, the class tested the effect of various beverages on our teeth. As egg shells are similar to the enamel in our teeth we used eggs to test the beverages.
For Science week 2021, G5 had a look at some experiments in relation to health and hygiene.
First, we discussed the need for hand hygiene in today’s world. We used bread to find out what was best to keep our hands clean. We also made predictions on which slice of bread would develop mould first. Our test pieces included a fresh untouched slice of bread, a slice that was handled by unwashed hands, sanitised hands and hands washed with soap and water. We also rubbed one slice of bread on a table to discover how bacteria spreads.
Here are the results.
G3 100% embraced Science Week with great enthusiasm.
They actively participated in class discussions, STEM workshops and showcasing their amazing, innovative STEM/STEAM creations!
Monday= creating a spaghetti and marshmallow freestanding tower!
Tuesday= creating a spinning toy, inspired by the scientist Isaac Newton!
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday= designing and creating Drawbots! Yes, you heard it right–robots that draw!!
The class were presented with Science Week 2020 certificates Friday afternoon to mark their super efforts👏
All the junior infants in R3 took part in the Lego morning as part of Science week. A great time was had by all! _
