5th and 6th class Microscopy Workshop

Mrs Brennan, Science, STEM No Comments »

On Monday, 5th and 6th class pupils attended a Microscopy Workshop in Sligo IT. Working with microscopes, pupils became familiar with the different parts and functions. They explored how several lenses work together to bend and focus light, making objects appear much bigger than they are. Pupils explored the composition of dust (pieces of dead skin, pollen from plants, fibres from clothing, clay, soil, pet fur and other little organic particles). Pupils also examined the type of insects found under leaves (woodlouse, millipede, worm, snail, spider, earwig etc). The workshop brought science to life and an enjoyable and informative day was had by all.

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.

We learned how to take our pulse in the past week. 

We estimated our resting heart rate and what our heart rate would be after two laps of the school yard.

Watch our short video to see how it went!

We learned about temperature this past week.

We estimated the temperature in our class, in the shelter, in the yard and at the front of the school.

We worked in groups and used thermometers to measure the temperature in these locations.

We then recorded the temperature on sheets and figured out how accurate our estimates were.
