Carlow IT

5th June 2019

The children in 1st to 6th class went to Carlow IT today. In the morning, the children completed two activities. One activity was in the sports lab and the other in a hall. In the lab, the children measured their speed sprinting, how high they can jump and developed strength through squatting. In the hall, the children did a circuit workout and then a relay race.

In the afternoon, the children engaged in the ‘Cell Explorers’ Programme. The children extracted DNA from a banana. The children really enjoyed being a scientist and even got to wear a lab coat!

Thank you to Carlow IT and Ciara for organising the day for the children. They had a great day! Thank you to Claire and Tara for coming along and helping the children and teachers with the activities.
