Science Competition

As part of Science Week 2015, 5th and 6th class participated in the Mayo School Design Challenge held in conjunction with Mayo Science and Technology festival.

The challenge was to build the tallest free-standing structure, made out of 20 spaghetti sticks and a meter of masking tape. In addition, the structure must be capable of supporting a marshmallow. The time allowed was 40 minutes.

Two teams from 5th and 6th class entered the competition and we are delighted to announce that team 1 (Saibh, Gary and Stephen) won 1st place for the highest structure at 73cm tall!!

They each won a fantastic prize pack consisting of a drink bottle, a twenty five euro Easons voucher, a hoodie and a bag.

Well done to both teams for taking part!
