Junior and Senior Infants were busy designing, making and constructing for Engineers Week with Ms. Murray.
One of the Junior Infant classes had to design a tower for Rapunzel, while the other class had to make a new home for the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe. They started with the design of their idea and then moved to the construction phase. They used a variety of different materials and came up with some fantastic ideas!
The Senior Infants were faced with the task of designing an Amazing Building. To begin with they studied buildings like the Sydney Opera House, the Burj Khalifa and many more for some inspiration. However, their Amazing Building had to be built using marshmallows and spaghetti only! This meant lots of redesigning and fixing to ensure the building was stable. The Senior Infants had lots of fun and made some wonderful structures.
We definitely have some budding engineers in our midst, here in Scoil Eoin!
