Valeo Visit

5th and 6th had a wonderful opportunity last week to visit Valeo in Tuam where they learned a vast amount on the work they do in Valeo. They learned all about different types of cameras used in cars, autonomous cars, the future of automobiles and even got to see and sit in an autonomous car used in Valeo for testing. Thanks to Stephanie, John and Paul at Valeo for an extremely informative and enjoyable visit.

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.
