Intel Mini Scientist

4th /5th and 6th classes took part in this project. We could work individually or in groups of up to 4 people. We had to come up with a science project of our choice and investigate that topic. On Wed 26th Oct we displayed and explained our projects to all the other classes in the school. They really enjoyed viewing our projects. On Thurs 27th Oct judges from Intel in Shannon came in to judge our projects. They looked at all the projects in great detail and the overall winners were Jack O’ Driscoll and Mark Reynolds from 4th class with their project called “ How to generate electricity for our new school using playground equipment and food waste”. They will now go on to represent the school at the regional final in Intel Shannon on Nov 30th
