Each day last week the children in 5th and 6th class were given a challenge.

Day 1: They learnt about women engineers and had to design and build a bridge.

Day 2: The children learnt about Irish Water and their challenge was to design and build a system for cleaning dirty water.

Day 3 :  The presentation on Wednesday was  What is Engineering?  and the challenge was to design, build and test a boat.

Day 4:  The challenge was to design and build a tower that would withstand a hurricane ( a fan on full power for 3 mins) and the children were provided with the latest issue of The Daily Stem.

Day 5 : On Friday they got to explore with Una and the challenge was a fun challenge, to grow a rainbow.
