The school celebrated National Science Week recently with a great range of hands on science activities. The children got to take part in a wide variety of experiments. For example, the third class children explored water filtration, what goes on inside a nappy, electrical circuits and dissecting animal hearts!! Junior classes looked at a wide range of topics including magnetism and static electricity. Senior classes found out more about careers in science. To conclude the week, we were delighted to welcome one of our parents, Joanna Donnelly, who is a meteorologist with Met Eireann. Joanna brought in a real weather station and demonstrated all the elements of weather forecasting to the Third Classes. The pupils were fascinated by Joanna’s presentation and were thrilled to be able to carry out some real weather experiments.
So watch out Malahide…future scientists are about!!
