Engineers Week

As part of engineers week the children carried out various STEM challenges.  Junior infants linked their STEM challenges with our Aistear Topic 'Fairy Tales & Traditional Stories'.  

There were many opportunities to use inquiry based learning techniques which helped us better understand the science, technology, engineering and math involved in our projects.
