To celebrate Science Week and in conjunction with the Tipperary Festival of Science and Science Foundation Ireland, the school hosted a workshop entitled "Rappers Guide to the Solar System". Pupils from 1st - 6th class were treated to a tour of the Solar System with a difference. Science presenter Jon Chase demonstrated just how extreme our Solar System can be using raps, demos and lots of audience participation. Examples of the topics covered were: How big is the Solar System? How cold is a crater? What's the smelliest planet?
