On Thursday the 24th of October, 4th, 5th and 6th took part in the Intel Mini Scientist. Two months ago we were told about the competition. We got to work on our project, making everything that we needed until the day when the judges arrived. It was hard work but as the day crept closer we grew more confident. When the judges came to our project we had to explain all about it. We thought it went well.
On the day the judges went to see all the projects in 4th, 5th and 6th. The standard was very high! Then the judges came back again to some projects before they made their final decision. In 2nd place was “Carbon Footprint” by Sophie Leahy, Ella Farrell, Aoibh Blake and Grace Herbert.
In first place was “Bee Ware” by Ailbhe Curran, Aoife Reynolds, Andrea Barry and Siofra Quinn. This group will now go on to the regional final in Intel Shannon in December.
