On Wednesday, 22nd November 2017 Sixth Class were delighted to welcome back Professor Mathias Senge, from Trinity College Dublin, to Scoil Mhuire, Navan.

A fascinating lecture “Vampires-Fact or Fiction?” kick-started the events of the day. The children were highly engaged and asked superb questions on the topic.

Following this lecture, it was off to the school hall to divide into five groups. The children were given the opportunity to participate in two very messy, but extremely entertaining experiments.

The first of these was making their own volcanoes using flour, water, food colouring, bread soda and vinegar. The second experiment involved using cream, yogurt, chocolate and fruit with the special ingredient liquid nitrogen to make ice-cream! The children were in awe as Professor Senge demonstrated the power of liquid nitrogen by freezing bananas and flowers!

Scoil Mhuire thanks Professor Mathias Senge for taking time out of his busy schedule to visit our school and we look forward to many more visits in the future.
