4 Projects to carry out!

1. Tooth Picks
The idea is to get a map of Ireland and map out on the map using tooth picks, the average amount of car fatalities over the past 10 years and this would be done on a county to county basis. An element of colour and the height of the toothpicks would depict the amount of deaths etc.

Equipment needed:
– Toothpicks
– Map of Ireland
– Paint?
– Scissors

Important that we take photos of each of the processes from start to finish as we will be documenting this.

Averages:
Carlow: 3
Cavan: 6
Clare: 5
Cork: 22
Donegal: 13
Dublin: 22
Galway: 15
Kerry: 11
Kildare: 10
Kilkenny: 5
Laois: 5
Leitrim: 3
Limerick: 13
Longford: 3
Louth: 7
Mayo: 9
Meath: 9
Monaghan: 5
Offaly: 5
Roscommon: 5
Sligo: 4
Tipperary: 12
Waterford: 5
Westmeath: 6
Wexford: 8
Wicklow: 5

2. Daisy Chains
The daisy chains will represent the lowest average amount of deaths throughout the 4 provinces over the past 10 years, each chain will be coloured in their counties colour to show to the person interacting with what county the casualty took place in.

The whole point to get across is, regardless of them being the lowest rate, they are still counted as deaths and it gets across the point that every life is valuable.

The lowest amounts are:

MUNSTER:
Clare: 5
Waterford: 5

LEINSTER:
Carlow: 3
Longford: 3

CONNACHT:
Sligo: 4

ULSTER:
Monaghan: 5

Equipment needed:
– Paper
– Scissors
– Colours
– Glue/Tape/Staples

3. Jelly Babies
This one will display the highest averages of deaths per province. Similar to the last one but this time it’s displaying the opposite value.

The highest amounts are:

MUNSTER:
Cork: 22

LEINSTER:
Dublin: 22

CONNACHT:
Galway: 15

ULSTER:
Donegal: 13

Equipment needed:
– Jellybabies
– Toothpicks

4. Cars
Display the average amount of deaths in Cork alone for the past 10 years. This will be done by suspending the cars from wires at the same level. Potentially hanging from a cardboard cutout of cork and have it displayed outside as almost like a wind chime by the road, the wind will take the movement of the cars to make it look like they are hitting off each other.

Deaths in Cork over the past 10 years: 22

Equipment needed:
– Toy cars
– string (possibly invisible)
– cardboard cut out of cork
– Scissors
