We had a Young Scientists Day today in Ballyconneely Hall. It went really well, with the only downside being the way we ran out of time and didn’t get to make our chocolate crunchie cake! Oh well, there’s always next time. I had a list of ten experiments to do.. and we only got five of them done. The time just flew by! Thanks to everyone who came along and worked so hard on their experiments! It was lovely to see all the familiar faces and lots of new ones too! I saw a lot of future scientists in the making today!

We also made bird feeders:
We made lemonade! Note: leave the bread soda out of the recipe! It tastes disgusting!
We didn’t have time to make our cake:
