S.A.P Visit to Crumlin!

A huge thank you to Dave Ryan and his colleagues Maeve & Rebecca from S.A.P. who came to school today and spoke about Computer Science & Design Process to the children. 3rd & 4th class created remote control cars. 5th & 6th worked in teams to design and create bridges made from just straws and sellotape. It was thoroughly enjoyed by all and showcased the skills and thought processes needed for differing careers.

On the 25th of September, pupils from 3rd, 4th and 5th  were accompanied by SISK engineers Noel Curtis and Alan Mullane on to the new Tuam-Gort Motorway. The children were shown the largest roundabout in Ireland, SOS telephones, road signage, rumble strips, water run -off areas and what materials were used in constructing the new road. Many thanks to SISK for this opportunity.
