Ms Crowley’s 6th class went virtual with Lego Robotics as Learn It Ireland provided us with a fun STEM in Box workshop to build a land yacht.

Students discovered STEM through unique projects. Each project brings together Engineering Principles, Science, Maths, Art, Creativity and much more.

Working with their custom kits, children constructed their own land yacht, made predictions, performed tests and recorded their findings.

STEM skills were developed by:

• Building and exploring real life Machines and Mechanisms
• Developing scientific enquiry skills – Following a design brief as part of the engineering process.
• Investigating and working through observations, reasoning, predicting, reflecting and critical thinking.
• Collecting data and describing outcomes.
