Recently pupils in Rang a Cúig and Rang a Sé enjoyed  working with circuits as part of Science and Engineering week. A huge thank you to Tom Knipe and his colleagues for an informative workshop and igniting sparks of curiosity among the pupils. Here is to the budding scientists and engineers of the future.


Abbott Visit

We were delighted to have Tom Knipe and a colleague from Abbott in to speak at Drumlease National School today.

The students of third and fourth class learned all about Abbott and the robotic assembly lines that are in use today. Students learned about the various kinds of engineering work that it is possible to aspire to. We studied electrical circuits and worked in small groups to connect wires to make bulbs light up and a working FM radio. Dáithí was the proud winner of a K’nex set after getting the top score in the quiz. View our photos and videos below.
