At All Saints’ there was a feast of activities provided for the pupils to celebrate Science Week 2020 which ran from 8th to 15th November.
Science week is a nationwide festival of Science which provides children with an opportunity to develop their interest in Science through a series of informative and fun activities. Science week is a prime opportunity for children to explore the relationship between Science and everyday life.
This year the school registered with Cavan Monaghan Science festival and participated in various virtual online workshops. The pupils were taken on a new road of discovery ranging from Unplugged Coding ,Food Science to Forensic Scene Investigation, Science of Bubbles, Amazing Invertebrates with Dublin Zoo to the Science of Weather with Joanna Donnelly.
The pupils carried out a range of experiments based on the principles of chemistry and physics and with their new scientific knowledge became more aware of the significance of our sense of smell when tasting food. Pupils were able to explore weight and force distribution in a fun way as they positioned themselves on a table which was supported by several balloons. They made their own Sherbet, Rainbow Skittles, Bouncing Bubbles, Lava Lamps ,Fizzy Paint and to top it all their very own ice cream. By the end of the week not only were the pupils interested in Science, they were thinking like Scientists.
