Science Blast


On Wednesday the 24th of May, both 3rd classes went to Science Blast in Mary I College, Limerick. We went there on the bus. Tina curled her hair and makeup on the bus. When we arrived we got wristbands and pins for our uniform. There were stands for every project and loads of people there. There were students from all over Munster there. Each class presented their project to the judges. There were science shows on different topics such as aerodynamics, one about astronauts. We got to meet a real astronaut Norah Patten. Tina’s 3rd class’s project was about how electric cars work and Michelle’s 3rd class’s project was about how our eyes work. Both classes won a trophy. Some of us got interviewed by Spin South West.

We all met television presenters Clara Murray and John Sharpson. Everyone working there was very nice and gave us high fives.

On the way back we went to Hungry Lyons for something because we were starving after our long and exciting day. We arrived back at the school at half three.
