Our Trip to D.C.U.
When we got to the D.C.U the President of Engineers Ireland said a speech. After that we set up the stand and Henry and Hugo went to do a building competition. Here’s what they did. - We were called by a lady and we had to go to an area. They gave us paper and we had to build a tower out of it, it’s amazing what you can do with a piece of paper. We did not win but it was fun.
Here’s what Aimée and Hannah did. - We were at the stand. Hannah’s mum and Ms.Bennett had to go downstairs and leave us to talk to the judges on our own. When the judges came they asked us questions and we answered them the best we could. We showed them two experiments. Then everyone had lunch together. Next we watched a science show by Scientific Sue. She blew off the head of Peppa Pig and told us loads of different interesting things.
Then everyone got a photo taken and then she announced the winners - we didn’t win but we still got a silver certificate. The prize for the building competition was a laptop. The prize for the science competition was a smart board, a laptop, a trophy and a gold certificate.
The next day in assembly we showed the project to the rest of the school.
