We learnt about the various types of engineer and the jobs they do. We decided to undertake some civil engineering work in class. We began designing and making structures that we thought would withstand a mini earthquake! We used spaghetti and marshmallows and designed ways to make the structure sturdy.
We also designed bridges from paper and we figured out ways to make the bridge withstand some weight!
Thanks to Ben from 3rd class who showed us his robot during engineers week. He told us how he put it together and then he gave us a demonstration of it moving in different directions!
We are the Junior and Senior Infant Stars from Crusheen N.S. Co. Clare. We hope you enjoy viewing many of our activities!
