SEAI – Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland – Science Week

This week we had the opportunity to meet Fergal from Life Time Labs. Fergal spoke to us about how we can save energy at home and at school. We learned about fossil fuels and the effects of climate change on our world. We even got the chance to practice some experiments and play a life size energy board game!


Meg Foley had this to say about her experience –


Today we had a worker from the Lifetime lab come to our school. We had a talk about how you can save electricity .There are a lot of different ways, like turning off the lights when you leave the room, hanging the washing on the line and turning off your TV box .We also did cool experiments. We created energy by using 3 lemons with copper and zinc stuck into them. We also did a fun board game. I was on team blue with Aisling ,Aoife, Kate, Shane,Lucy and Sean.  The experience was fun I would love to do it again.
