Science Week '24
Science week ’24
What a great time we had during Science Week in Mercy Convent! We kicked off the week with a ‘Chain Mates Challenge’ for all of our Junior Classes, while the Senior Classes completed a ‘Use Your Imagination Problem Solving’ activity – we really had to put our thinking caps on for that one! All classes from Juniors to Sixth then conducted experiments with their teacher, ranging from dancing raisins, to launching rockets, and even to making string telephones. We also engaged in a home challenge of designing and making a catapult which could launch a ball of cotton wool. The entries to the challenge were absolutely amazing and great fun was had by all who participated and a big well done to the supporters too who really added to the atmosphere!
We rounded the week off with a fantastic surprise demonstration from the Green Schools Committee which consisted of Millie, Kate, Evangel, Hazel, Anabel, Lily, Eleanor, Julia, Elsa, Lauren, Lucy and Rebecca – they did a brilliant job showing each and every class how sound moves in waves and how important friction is. Finally, a huge well done to the entire school for participating in Science Week and a special mention to John, Mr Ruane, Ms Clancy and Ms Woulfe who played huge roles in organising the activities. Looking forward to next year’s Science Week already!
