Between conducting experiments, virtual science shows, researching famous scientists and wrapping it all up with a Science Quiz, Science Week certainly was a busy one for 6th Class. We made periscopes, used the separation of the colours in markers on filter paper to demonstrate chromatography and placed balloons under a table to illustrate how air pressure works. We also impressed teacher with the range of investigations we carried out at home and uploaded to Seesaw. We enjoyed the virtual science shows 'Surprising Science' with Dr. Matt Pritchard and 'Mysterious Microbes' with Scientific Sue. Many thanks to the Science Foundation of Ireland and Galway Science and Technology Festival for facilitating these. We have been looking at report writing in English and so compiled reports on two scientists, Mary Anning and Alexander Graham Bell, using shared writing. We are now attempting to write reports independently on a scientist of our own choice. The Science Quiz on Friday tested our knowledge and we proved ourselves with great results! A great week was had by all!!
