Regional Final of Intel Mini Scientist:
Recently, Noah Higgins, Jack O’Halloran and Kyle Ahearne had a trip down to Intel™ in Shannon for the regional finals of the Intel™ mini scientist. The boys did their project on the Science of Vision. There was a lot of great projects there on the day such as: How solar panels work, How cows business is affecting our environment, which is worse vr (virtual reality) or normal video games etc. There was five places to go through to the next round, unfortunately the boys did not get through but we are still proud of them for making it this far and representing the school.
