Design a Safety Jacket for an Egg

The class was split in groups of 2 for a science experiment, designing a safety jacket for an egg. Each group first got an egg, then wrapped it in tin foil, tissue, wool, tape and a lot more materials. The safety jacket has to be able to protect the egg and prevent damage when the egg is dropped from 2 meters of height, Some eggs survived, others miserably said goodbye to their life.

Power of Design – Workshop

Matt is an architect that works for Dublin City Council, he came to the class to show us the power of design. First, we watched an animated video about the power of design. Then we watched it again but this time we focused on the detail and listed all the things in the video that changed into a better version of itself. After that we answered questions to find out what type of design suits us. Later on we were split into 4 groups of 4 and each group designed something they could improve in everyday life.

Hugh Lane Gallery

We went to the Hugh Lane Art Gallery to do a project called “Zoom.” We were shown a painting called: “The Diligence in the Snow,”Each pupil got a sketchbook and sketched out any part of the painting they wanted to sketch and then we discussed the painting. After that we were taken upstairs to an Artist’s Studio. We all made something out of plaster of Paris, water and more art materials. The students later brought their art work home.
