Field Trip Prep

Tomorrow we’re doublin’ back to Dublin for the Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. There are literally thousands of projects by Irish primary and secondary students: http://btyoungscientist.com/qualified-projects-2018/ Winners we be announced tonight before our visit.

This morning, Porter’s is working with the SEK students to prepare for Saturday. Each group of  three needs to research the projects themselves and a map of the exhibition hall. Then they have to make a presentation recommending four or five projects to their classmates.



It’s a simple but brilliant assignment that combines communication, collaboration, and student choice.

Because SEK does not have a proper gym, they do a lot of walking and hiking around the area. After lunch, we’re taking a six kilometer hike to a local waterfall. Pictures and, time permitting, reflections tonight.
