Féach anseo chun an Tionscadal Fuinneamh le Rang 5 a fhéiceáil
Rang 1 took the outside temperature every day at 11a.m and recorded the data on a graph
Rinneamar suirbhé leictreachais sa bhaile.
Fuaireamar amach go bhfuil an-costas ar leictreachas.
Rang 5 took the electricity reading every Monday and worked out how many units of electricity had been used. They then recorded the data and graphed it in an Excel graph.
They also looked at all the electricity bills for the year and graphed the results. Click Here.
Fuinneamh a úsaid muid ag teacht ar scoil
Úsaideann 62 páiste fuinneamh athnuaithe chun teacht ar scoil.
Úsaideann 120 páiste fuinneamh neamh-athnuaithe chun teacht ar scoil.
Rang 5 did a number of other surveys within the school. They asked each child in the school how they travelled to school e.g by car, bus, walked or cycled. They then graphed the results. HERE
Following this survey they then converted the results to renewable and non renewable energy, which they graphed. HERE
Rang 2 Testing foods for starch during Science Week
Tá Stáirse i ngach áit .
What material will keep ice lollies the coolest? Rang 1
We used paper, tinfoil, bubble wrap, a plastic bag to cover the ice lollies. We discovered that the tinfoil kept the ice lollies from melting longer than the other objects. We all enjoyed an ice lolly after the experiment
