On Tuesday 13th of March, Room 1 participated in a science workshop organised by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland.

First, we took part in a discussion during which we learned lots of interesting facts about where we get our electricity from. We learned about the different places we can get energy from, the importance of saving energy and the importance of looking after our planet by recycling.

We then carried out some experiments. We used energy from a potato to light a light bulb! We also trapped gas inside a small tube which caused it to explode.

Lastly, we played a life size board game. We used all the facts we learned during the workshop to compete against each other in groups.

It was a very interesting and exciting workshop.
