Wow! What a week of science we have had, from building bridges, creating an electrical circuit, making an apple clock, blowing big bubbles, exploding coke, lava lamps, crystals and much much more.
We took part in a zoom with Kerry Science Festival. Below are some of the amazing things we learned:

Lodestone is a natural magnet that was discovered by accident 9,000 years ago.
The earth is a big magnet.
Sea Turtles and the Bogong Moth use the earths magnetic field to travel.
The fastest train travels at 600km per hour and is supported by a magnetic field.
The highest jump on a trampoline is 6.7metres.
Science is Everything!!

There was great excitement on our return to school as we discovered a nest containing some baby swallows. The boys and girls have given the baby swallows names and we are enjoying watching them grow. Did you know the Irish for swallow is fáinleog? Swallows build their nests from mud. They migrate to warmer places such as Africa during the winter months. Their forked tails make them easy to identify.
