Science Fair 2016

The Movie Makers, one of our SEASA (St Edward’s After School Activities) clubs, made this short movie using  the iMovie app on an iPad. They had to choose which clips to use, edit them and add some voice overs. They then chose some theme music for the background and added titles and credits. They are very proud of their work, and hope you enjoy it!

Junior Infants Science Fair

We were learning about primary colours in Junior Infants. The primary colours are red, yellow and blue.

When you mix 2 of these colours together they make new colours.


We put blue food colouring into a cup. We put red into another cup and yellow into a third cup.

When the colours mixed they made new colours.

Blue and red made purple.

Red and yellow made orange.


We showed our experiment to our parents in the hall.

Maths and Science Afternnoon

Junior Infants had a really great time preparing our maths project and science experiment for St. Edward’s Maths and Science Afternoon. We also really enjoyed visiting the fair and would like to say thank you to all the other classes for sharing their maths and science projects with us, we learned a lot in one afternoon. We hope all our parents enjoyed their visit as well.

Procedure to Make a Circuit

Procedure to Make an Electric Circuit  By Seweryn and Kian – 4th Class


Covered copper wire
Crocodile clips

Battery holder and battery
Bulb holder and bulb
Switch (optional)
An electric circuit is formed when you:

1) Attach  a wire to a battery in a battery holder using a crocodile clip.

2) Attach a bulb holder with a bulb to the other end of the wire using another crocodile clip.

3) Connect another wire from the remaining end of the battery holder to the other side of the bulb holder with a crocodile clip.

4) Now you have a full circuit and a working bulb.

Kian, Keelan and I (Seweryn) made a circuit!

We added a switch to our circuit.

A wire with crocodile clip at the end
And a switch

1) Attach the wire to the battery or the bulb with a crocodile clip.

2) Attach the other end to the switch and make a new circuit
Now every time you switch the switch the bulb will turn off and on.
Seweryn and I (Kian) made one and it worked perfectly!

We showed our circuits at the science fair.



Materials: wires, battery, bulb and switch.
