INTEL Mini-Scientist Grand Final

On Wednesday 22nd February, Jack and Mark went to Maynooth University for the INTEL Mini Scientist. We got there at around 10 o’clock. When we got there we met our principal. We started to get ready at about half 10. We went down to our seats and the judges told us about themselves. The main judge was called Phil Smith the next judge was Sarah Sexton and the last judge was Tracey Nolan. At half eleven they started to judge. There was a book judge and a visual judge. Following that, we went to have lunch. They looked at our project and how it was about to change the climate aka saving the world. After that, we went back and Phil Smith did a few experiments with us. First, he did a rocket experiment. After he did a few other really cool, fun experiments. The judges tallied their scores but sadly we didn’t win, we had a brilliant day!
