In school we have been making lego robots with Lego WeDo 2.0. The theme has been climate change. We made lego robots such as a flood gate and an electric car. It was great fun.
We made a lot of things out of lego like Milo the robot, a water-gate, a slug and a windmill. We programmed then to move, change colour, make noise…
I really enjoyed making robots with Lego WeDo and can’t wait until next time!!
We are building Lego robots with Ms. McDonald. We are building little robots that can move, play music and a lot more. We are also talking about climate change and how it is melting the ice. The temperatures on earth are getting warmer and the weather is getting more extreme all around the world. The sea levels are rising and we made a lego flood gate which shows how to keep rising water from flooding cities.
As part of our Creative Schools Programme the pupils from the senior room took part in a sound workshop with Ed Devane today. Ed is an Irish multidisciplinary artist working primarily with sound. The children completed several activities throughout the day which included finding electro magnetic signals, working with a contact microphone to listen to sound vibrations, making recordings using an a digital audio recorder with various sounds from around the classroom. The class really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to the next stage of the workshop in early May.

Best of luck to Evan & Cathal (5th class) who have been accepted to the NUI Galway Youth Academy Spring programme. The 6-week programme is a wonderful opportunity for primary school students to get experience of learning in a University.
Evan will study Biotechnology & Biomedical Engineering – “Biolegos: Engineering with the Building Blocks of Life“.
Cathal will learn about Irish law in the course “The World of Cops and Robbers: Learning the Law”.
We look forward to hearing all about Evan’s & Cathal’s unique experience and learning a thing or two from them too!
