K’Nex Challenge

The children in the senior classes took part in the K’Nex Challenge. Mr. John Poland, one of our parents came in to the school and gave a very interesting talk to the children on engineering. On the morning of the challenge Mr. Adrien Fitzgerald from Intel Co. Kildare monitored their inventive designs. William, Dylan and Robert won and went on to represent the school in the semi-final, which was held in the Lifetime Lab in the Lee Road.
