In Ms. O’Brien’s room we explored the history of phones. We compared old phones to new phones. We identified their similarities and differences. In art we sketched an old phone with charcoal. In science we created a phone using cardboard cups and twine. To experiment we compared different materials to act as a wire. What great fun and so much learning!
The 4th, 5th and 6th class pupils took part in the VEX IQ Challenge in January 2019. They traveled to Dell and competed with their robot "Billy Murphy". The students made presentations to document the project. Eva, Aoibhinn, Hazel and Liam made a video entitled "Team Gizmo's Journey". Ava made a powerpoint with Ms Costelloe. You can see it below. Thank you to Kevin McCarthy and Andy Cahill who helped us with the Vex IQ Challenge project. Well done to all involved!
