Designing and Making String Instruments

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | February 4, 2015 Comments Off |

3rd and 4th class enjoyed learning about sound in science and string instruments in music. They then got the opportunity to design and make their own string instruments while investigating the effect of the length and thickness of the elastic band on the pitch of the sound.

One pupil excelled in his investigation which resulted in designing a method to stretch the band to change the pitch of the string, just like a real string instrument. Well done!

Super Scientists in the Intel National Finals!

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | January 30, 2015 Comments Off |

Everyone in St. Oliver’s would like to say a huge congratulations to the two Rang 5 boys who made it to the national finals of Intel Mini-Scientist. They worked very hard on their project ‘Generate Our Own Natural Energy’. Back in October a judge from Intel came to judge all of the class projects in Rang 5&6. The boys came 1st and so progressed to the regional finals in December. They came out on top at the regionals and made it to the national final last Friday. This is such a huge achievement! The boys did brilliantly and their project placed in the top 10! The future certainly looks bright for these super scientists! Have a look at some of their pictures.
