During the Renaissance, Michelangelo spent over 4 years painting the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. Contrary to popular belief, he did not do it lying down but rather standing on a platform and reaching up to the ceiling.
We decided to try and draw over our heads to get some idea of how difficult it would be. By the time we were finished, our arms ached - we were very glad it didn't take us years to complete the work.
Heather from Junior Achievement has started coming in to our class to introduce us to the Our World Programme.
This programme runs for 5 weeks and is based on the STEM skills - Science. Technology. Engineering. Maths. Through hands-on activities each week the girls explore STEM skills and the role they play in the future of the business world. Exploring how technology and communications are vital growth areas in the global marketplace, the girls examine entrepreneurship and develop their own business ideas - it's great fun too! Thanks Heather.

We were very excited to watch Emilia and all the other young delegates at the Climate Change Summit in the Dáil recently.
