On Nov 30th we went to the regional final in Intel Shannon. The winning project from each school in the Shannon catchment area was there. We went in and set up our display. They asked all the teachers to leave and go into the staffroom. Then the judges came to look at all the projects. Two sets of judges and different Intel workers came to question us on our project. After the judges had done all that they left to make their decision. While they were doing this a man called Phil did a science quiz with us. He also showed us how to make a tornado in a bottle. Then the judges came back and announced the 5 winners and we were delighted to hear Knockanean called out! We will now go on to the Grand Final in Maynooth University in February.
