Engineers Week

What a busy week we're having in Kilrickle! This week marks Engineers Week 2019. 1st and 2nd Class have been learning that it is an Engineer's job to design, build and maintain things. We kicked off Engineer's week with some toothpick constructions. It was very difficult to stop ourselves from eating the marshmallows but we managed to make some great structures that Dermot Bannon would be jealous of.

We also learned how Engineers construct bridges. We experimented with walls, arches and corrugated card to make our bridges stronger.
