By Lauren in 4th Class
We went to a Science Show in Kiltimagh. There was a man called Declan and he was teaching us about astronomy and the solar system.
He brought up a few people and one person was the sun and one person was the earth and he was showing us how the earth rotates around the sun. Then he brought up a person to be the moon and he showed us how the moon orbits the earth. It made us dizzy because they were all moving around in a circle.
Then he showed us the person who created astronomy. His name was Plato. He discovered the galaxy and the solar system.
Then he made a joke out of different planets by using bars of chocolate- he used a mars bar, a galaxy and a milky way. It was very funny.
He showed us a clip from an episode from one of his series. He was in a contraption and he was moving around, like you would move around in space. We could see how funny it would be to be in a space ship. He pretended to faint after!
My favourite thing about the show was when he got people up and made a joke about the mars bars and galaxy bars. I would definitely go again.
Science Week 2018
On the day we arrived at 12 o’clock, we were greeted by other teams from Mayo in 6th class. After everybody had arrived each team was escorted to their table by a member of science week team. When we arrived at our table we were given 25 straws & approximately 1 metre of masking tape and some sweets!
We had 40 minutes to complete our bridges. There was a variety of different designs. We learned that we had to hook a bag of rice to our bridge which we were not expecting. Our design was built to withhold weight on the top of it so it did not live up to our expectations. But overall we had a very educational experience at the competition.
