3rd-6th Class completed a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) workshop recently in conjunction with Go Fly Your Kite, Mary Immaculate College and the Tipperary Festival of Science. The workshop firstly involved a Zoom presentation with Glenn and George from Go Fly Your Kite which looked the history of flight as well as discussing what an object needs in order to be able to fly. Glenn and George then gave a tutorial on how to build a kite. After that, the pupils designed and built their own kites using the kits provided. Thankfully, the recent windy weather has provided perfect kite flying conditions around the Thomastown area!
