STEM talk

Today Conor’s mammy Norahella came to talk to us about how important our heart is. She is part of the Medtronic STEM team and STEM is very important in her job . She brought us in a diagram of a heart and we had to try and colour the veins and arteries the right colours – blue or red. The heart is a funny shape not at all what we thought. Norahella gave us a special cube and iPad that let us see our organs in 3D

. We could see a heart beating just like it is inside the body. At the end we asked Norahella lots of questions. We all want to be scientists when we grow up.
