Last week 21 students from Bandon Grammar took part in the BY Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition.
The students had a fantastic time and learned loads from the exhibition.
Orla O’Sullivan, Laura Ryan and Amy O’Reilly highly commended in their category Social and Behavioural Sciences Junior Group with their project “How can we improve the mindfulness of young people in Ireland?”
Alex O’Connor placed third in his category Intermediate Individual in Biological and Ecological Sciences with his project “A comparison of foot biomechanics in sport playing and non-sport playing teens”
Gregory Tarr came 2nd in his junior individual category in biological and ecological sciences with project “A novel approach to growing nanochloropsis in a controlled environment and its subsequent ability to produce oil”
These were fantastic results and show the high standard of projects that are being produced in BGS. We continue to be among the top contributing schools at the exhibition year after year which is a testament to our fantastic Science department.
Many of our students gained excellent media exposure. Suzanne Bateman was interviewed on the Eoghan McDermott Show on 2FM. The interview is available here http://www.rte.ie/radio/radioplayer/rteradiowebpage.html#!rii=1:10671978:20524:16/01/2017 and is about 25 minutes into the show.
Many thanks to all involved especially the students, their parents and the BGS Science Department, particularly Ms. McCarthy and Ms. McGrath who accompanied the students to the RDS.
