The title of our project was 'Finding the Optimal Angle to Achieve the Greatest Distance for our Rockets'. We travelled to Mary I college today to present our work and we even managed to get on TV (Ireland AM). Fifth class have worked on this project for nearly the entire school year and I think deserved a great day out to present their work to a wider audience and to have fun doing so. Well done to all. Here is a link to our TV interview.
a HUGE WELL DONE TO ALL THE PUPILS THAT TOOK PART. eVERYONE WAS HUGELY IMPRESSED WITH THE DIVERSITY OF IDEAS AND INGENUITY ON dISPLAY.
Pupils were tasked with designing and making a device that could move a tennis ball from one table to another across a gap of half a metre. They were not allowed shop bought kits. The device had to be hand built. They were allowed to put the ball in at the start but it needed to make its own way out on the otherside. The winner of the competition today was Sarah Walsh of 6th class. Congratulations Sarah.
