Science Week

science-weekTo mark Science Week a science themed series of extracurricular activities took place in Piper’s Hill College from 14- 18 November. The week began with a grizzly murder mystery. The body of Ms Sheridan was found on the college corridor. The scene was immediately forensically preserved and a murder investigation was launched. A host of would be detectives uncovered a series of clues which established that Ms Ramsbottom was guilty of the murder. She was immediately arrested by acting Garda Mr Grace. On Wednesday students enjoyed an all class science quiz. Later that day Mr Byrne displayed his chemistry skills by launching a dry ice rocket tens of metres into the sky as hundreds of students watched in awe. The week was concluded with a Science Fair where students could investigate a scientific topic of interest in one of the three science laboratories and present their findings for adjudication. One of the lucky prize winners included Anthony Edwards for designing a gadget using electronic circuits. Some out of school activity included a trip to Dunsink Observatory . The week was a great success and enjoyed by all. Well done to the science department and helpers for organising the events.
