The children in 4th, 5th & 6th class enjoyed their visit to Athy Library recently. They participated in a ‘CSI Forensic’ workshop in recognition of Science Week.
Christina the co-ordinator showed the children two experiments: how to test ink and how to test powder. The boys and girls then took part in a murder mystery scenario. They had to listen carefully to Christina describe the suspects involved in the murder of the singer ‘Margarita’. They used the ink and powder experiments to find out who the culprit was. They really enjoyed this ‘hands on’ workshop and some may even have careers as detectives in the future!
