Last Thursday, four members of the Green Schools Committee made a trip to the RDS for the very first Green Schools Expo being held in Ireland! We couldn’t get over how busy the venue was with students from primary and secondary schools from all over the country in attendance. The boys got to see the president Michael D. Higgins and hear his speech on the importance of looking after our environment. The boys enjoyed building circuits which made fans turn and music and sirens play. We also saw people making really cool art out of recycled materials such as CD’s, pieces of tin and cans! The boys generated their own electricity by cycling specially designed bicycles, then realising how much energy and effort it takes to power a fridge for just one minute. We were shocked by how much electricity some appliances require- take a look at the free Home Energy Manager App on http://www.seai.ie/Power_of_One/Downloads/Phone_Apps/ to save yourself some money!
