Engineers Week

On Wednesday the 4th of March, two engineers called Robin Giller and Pat Lehane came to both 2nd classes. First, he showed us some pictures of quizzes and a computer chip. Then he demonstrated how to launch a balloon. After he showed us, we got a chance to launch our own balloons.  One person blew up a balloon, two people held the ends of a piece of string and one other person put the straw on the string.  The person who blew up the balloon held it close to the straw and taped it to the straw. Then they let go and it launched the balloon. We had great fun trying this.
