On Thursday 10th of January 2019, 5th class became the first to attend and exhibit at the Primary Science Fair, part of the B.T.Y.S.E. [BT young scientist exhibition] fair in the RDS in Dublin. We are happy to have received a plaque for participating in the fair and also being the best presenters. Our project is called active vs calm mornings. We picked this project because we wanted to see which one benefits our everyday performance in school more, being active or being calm.
We were walking around the RDS for around 2 hours, the stalls that we approached were, a stall with bugs from other countries then we went to stalls with free samples of their products, we went to see the VR (virtual reality) as well as an inflatable planetarium. then we went to the teenagers stalls, we saw a very good project about pollution and trying to get plastic out of rivers, oceans and seas, some of the other projects were about your heart rate.
We asked some people in the class about their favourite part: Anthea Dacdac said she liked the science shows. Dylan Palmer said he liked the 3D cinema. Harry Covey’s favourite part was the Coast Guard stand. Áine Barkers favourite bit was seeing her heart rate. Ben Sharon’s favourite bit was the project called “can computers sing.” Alexander Mackle and Anna Grogan’s favourite bit was presenting to the judges. Ned Kellys favorite bit was the laser maze. Other kids also enjoyed the racing robots and a few other amazing and brilliant stalls.
Overall this was a great experience, we all really enjoyed this, we would gladly go again and recommend going, to other classes and schools. this is also for secondary schools.
We hope we can all return soon in secondary school.
