Designs of the future by budding Engineers

As part of the STEAM Engineering Project Shane from UCC arrived into our class and we under took a number of engineering projects. Check out all the work that we completed here. We had so much fun and learned loads during this lesson. Check out STEAM-ED for more information on the Engineering in a Box Project.

Ms Curran’s 5th class boys have been busy putting their engineering skills to the test. They were tasked with design challenges as part of their STEAM project with UCC.

They engaged in an egg drop challenge, a rocket challenge and a raft/boat challenge.

They worked in teams to mindshower ideas, design and build prototypes and finally, test their designs!

Thanks to engineer Shane McDonagh who inspired and motivated the boys throughout their project!
