Dr. Naomi Lavelle’s Energy Workshop

We had a wonderful workshop on Energy today for Science Week.

We listed lots of forms of energy, saw how rubbing our hands turns kinetic energy into heat energy, saw how energy can be transferred from a basketball to a tennis ball, used an elastic band launcher to show potential energy being turned into kinetic energy, launched small balls with energy from air and watched an amazing energy machine in action.

Thank you to Galway Science and Technology Festival for sending us Dr. Naomi.  We had a wonderful time learning all about energy!
