During the week we also went to Making Einstein Easy in the Taibhearc. This was an excellent presentation by Debbie and Helen. We must use our brains abit more!
On Sunday morning, 27th. November, 2005, we set up The Waterways Model in the Galway Bay Hotel. Here we had a great position at the entrance to the Exhibition Hall. The Model looked terrific. Many people visited our stand, asked us many questions and it was nice to see adults and children pointing out places they knew. Minister Noel Treacy, Patron of the Science Projects paid us a visit and after chatting with us for a while about Galway and its waterways had his photo taken with us.
Later on Mr. Leo Enright, RTE Space Correspondent, and his assistant made a film of the Deputy Mayor talking to us about the importance of the waterways to Galway in the past and how we, as a city, were still using them. He himself also congratulated us on our excellent work.
We really enjoyed our day in the Galway Bay Hotel - being given time to visit the other excellent exhibits from other primary schools and the other interesting shows.
However we think our 3 D Model of the Waterways of Galway was really good and are quite proud of it. Thanks to Dermot and Podge who started us off on April 1st., 2004 and to our teachers who helped and encouraged us along the way.
We will continue to add to the model and perhaps you may be able to see it in the New Galway Museum.
