Pupils from all classes took part in a science exhibition and had great fun showing their experiments to their friends and lots of visitors at Croagh N.S. on Wednesday April 2nd. The experiments included examining plants, searching soil for mini beasts, creating sound, writing using mirrors, making reflections, guessing which objects would float and sink, increasing heart rate, making electrical circuits, looking at microbes, investigating magnetism, examining finger-prints, measuring lung capacity, searching for effective cleaning agents and lots lots more. Thanks to everybody who came along and encouraged the pupils, asked questions and took part in the experiments.
The exhibition is one component of the Discover Primary Science and Maths programme. Other aspects of the programme include observing and recording signs of spring in Ireland. A nurse also visited the school to explain to the children how science and technology are used in hospitals.
