November 28, 2019

November has been a busy month for STEM in our school. We had great fun learning all about DNA with the Cell explorers from UCC  and attended a science roadshow run by CIT in the Rockies Hurling Club.Chestnut Room have just completed their junior engineer project designs and have welcomed engineer Graham  to take part in their lessons and offer advice. We are so impressed with the teamwork in this room. Rowan Room have been working on Marine Projects- ranging from various cause of pollution ,over fishing to species studies and marine technology. We have had visitors from the Explorers Project at lifetime lab to support us with the group projects and today the final presentations took place and certificates were rewarded. We were all shocked to learn the extent of negative human impact on our seas and have committed to exploring some actions we can take in our own school to lesson our footprint on our planet. We are so thankful to the parents who have made us new planters and a large composting box . We look forward to growing some food with less 'food miles' . We have been enjoying observing the changing scenes with the seasons on the Blackrock line and have been learning about all the natural features and spotting wildlife - how blessed we are to have such biodiversity and beauty on our doorstep !!
