On Tuesday, 24th June 5 local primary schools joined Year 8 pupils in Limavady High School for a science convention. 120 pupils from Gorran, Roe Valley Integrated, Macosquin, Cumberclaudy and Drumrane primary schools joined a number of year 8 puils and spent the morning taking part in three workshops facilitated by Sentinus. Pupils were challenged to build a bridge spanning a metre from newspaper and cellotape, learned how to construct model hovercraft and learned about the basics of windmill technology in alternative energy production. In addition to developing scientific knowledge and gaining information on potential career pathways, pupils had the opportunity to develop teamwork , communication and problem solving skills. Mrs Calvin, Head of Careers, expressed her thanks to the Sentinus personnel, David Pilkington and Frank McCann who led the workshops and to the year 11 pupils who acted as mentors on the day.
