Intel Mini-Scientist

We had a fantastic display of Science in the large hall last Thursday (23rd November). Our 5th Class boys have been working really hard over the past number of months to create their projects. We had judges from Intel present during the day, and the winners were announced that evening, following an exhibition for other pupils and parents. We had a great variety of projects on display this year from all areas of Science, including solar powered cars, a rain detecting washing line, hydraulically powered JCB’s, erupting volcanoes and many more. Well done to everybody who made such a fantastic effort and best of luck to our winners in the next stage of the competition.

We were also delighted to welcome our parents in that evening for a showcase. It was here that the Intel judges announced our winners after much deliberation.


We were also delighted to meet Minister Richard Bruton and representatives from Intel at the grand finals, where our project finished in 2nd place.
