First School Tour – Blackrock Castle Observatory!

As part of our work for our STEM award application we went on our first school tour to Blackrock Castle Observatory.

We participated in a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths workshop ‘Make it Move’.

We made flying mice, colour shadows, marble runs and magnetic paintings.  We even got to go up to the Observatory to see the telescopes and into the planetarium to see a movie about Space!

It was unbelievable!
