This week is Engineer’s week. 4th class have been learning all about engineering and different types of engineers. On Thursday Dr Ian from UCD came into our class. He is a bio-mechanical engineer. This means he uses science to make things to help sick people get better.
He showed us the heart tissue he is growing in his lab to help people who have heart attacks. We dissected a heart last month so we had lots of questions! Science is so cool!
We explored hair, fingerprints, bees, coins, sugar, tissue and coffee through the microscope. We then had to use our new scientific skills to solve a mystery just like forensic scientists!
