Young Scientists

Young Scientists

The school continued its successful tradition with Young Scientist projects with four projects presenting in Dublin. “An improvement to the ranking system for Ireland’s Second Level Schools” was presented by Mark Casey and Éimear Corcoran; “Are Teenagers Carrying Risk Factors Now That We Would Only See in Older People Before?” was researched by Jordan Kiely, Abby Ring and Emma McSweeney; “Charcoal or Eye Liner Markers – Which is Better to Help the Daily Lives of Firefighters?” was presented by Katie Healy and Shannon O’Sullivan; “The Effects of Heavy Schoolbags on  Pupils” was investigated by David O’Donovan, Dylan Sheehan and Brian O’Sullivan. All students presented their projects with confidence and the expertise built over the months of research impressed all callers to the stands. An added bonus was Mark Casey and Eimear Corcoran winning a ‘highly recommended’ award in the Social and Behavioural Sciences category. A big thank you to Millstreet Community Council for their continued support of the school’s involvement in Young Scientists.
