Engineers Week – Intel Engineers: As part of engineers week 5 engineers from Intel in Shannon came into 2nd and 3rd class. Ciara and Michael went into 2nd and they started off by showing us a video of how they they build aeroplanes,cars ,alarm clocks etc. Afterwards they helped us to make a bridge. We got to use straws, elastic bands, paper clips,string and two classroom chairs to hold it up. When we had completed our bridges we had to give them a name like “The Irish Bridge” “The Bridge of Life” “The Sydney Bridge” and “The Knockanean Bridge”. Afterwards there was a competition to see which bridge was the best. Before they left everybody got a certificate and we got off homework that night!! We had a really good day!
