Eco sensor returns
Eco-sensor is back in schools!!
The Eco-sensor schools programme returned to schools in September 2008. During the schools programme children explored the project website and learned about the environmental conditions in the glasshouses, as well as the plants growing there. There were also hands-on datalogging sessions where children used hand held dataloggers to explore the environment and capture real time data.
From September-December 08 approximately 40 class groups participated in the Eco-sensor programme comprising of over 1,000 students.
Schools visited included Our Lady of Victories (Ballymun Rd), Holy Child Girls NS (Larkhill), Saint Josephs NS (Clane), St Patricks Boys NS (Kilcock), Cromcastle Green Boys NS (Kilmore Rd, D5), Scoil Eoghan Phoil (Leixlip), St Brigids Convent (Killester), Dunboyne Senior NS, St Eithnes Senior Girls NS (Raheny), Scoil Thomais (Castleknock), Star of the Sea Boys (Sandymount), North Dublin National School Project (Ballymun Rd), Glasnevin NS, North Kildare Educate Together (Celbridge), Presentation Girls Primary (Maynooth), Archbishop Ryan Senior NS (Lucan), Mater Dei Primary School (James St, D9), Corpus Christi NS (Glasnevin) and Presentation Convent (Warrenmount).
