Day 1 Summer Camp at Glenstal Abbey

Students arrived from Europe, the US and across Ireland yesterday evening to Glenstal Abbey, in glorious sunshine..

Some sport, ice breakers, supper and settling in with a wonderful group of students! Its going to be a very busy week! Water Rockets this morning and then working out ways of representing what they observed and which variables were at play and just why the rockets flew higher than others. Exploring patterns in Molecular structures and balancing 33 nails on the tip of one nail after the Plane Survival Challenge and making fire with an old battery and a bit of steel wool and then with a great game of football thrown in at the end punctuated with some very fast cycling…its was a fairly packed day! Have a look…. (More Tomorrow!)
