Engineers Week

04 March 2020

We are very interested in Science and Engineering in our class. We worked hard designing and constructing paper planes. There were a lot of planes flying around our seomra ranga at the end of the lesson!!! After our Aviation design challenge, we also used directional language to move robots from Start to Finish, we had to figure out if the robot needed to move forward, turn 1/4 to the left or a 1/4 to the right.

Today the 3rd and 4th class learnt about how LEGO is made. We used LEGO to make various items such as a camera, scooter, castles and houses.

Virtual Reality

03 March 2020

Our school is extremely fortunate to have been selected to participate in a fabulous pilot project called 'Virtually Here' as part the immersive classroom project Galway 2020. 5th Class will be working with the Visual Artist JoJo Hynes to create virtual reality worlds. Jojo visited our classroom on Friday last week and led the class through different virtual reality worlds including a trip to China, a Diwali festival and even a flight through the sky from a birds eye view. Jojo will visit our classroom several times between now and June. Throughout the weeks the boys will begin to create their own virtual worlds with the use of a 360 degree camera. They are extremely excited to share their projects with other schools through the use of a conferencing tool on a Webex board provided by Cisco. Many thanks to Ms Mc Laughlin who applied for the project on the schools behalf and to the PDST for providing all the amazing equipment we will use in the coming weeks.
