The main theme throughout the week was Climate Change and how we can make a real difference with our everyday actions! We carried out walking debates, discussing the advantages and disadvantages of plastic. We even discovered that you can pierce a sandwich bag full of water with a pencil, without spilling a drop! Keeping in line with COP26, we learned about fossil fuels and greenhouse gases, creating our own greenhouse gas models using gummy bears. As well as this we discovered that water is denser than oil and therefore oil always sits on top of water. This was a crucial element of our lava lamp experiment.
Finally we topped off the week by coming 3rd place in RTÉ’s Science Week Quiz: Pick your brain quiz!
