Jan 13 BT Young Scientist Competition 2014

Two of our Transition Year students were in the RDS this week taking part in the 50th BT Young Scientist Competition.

Eoin Forde and Joe O'Boyle presented a project the placebo effect and its use in sport (which came 3rd in their category –  Social & Behavioural Sciences).

Dylan Murray presented a project on how parabolic reflectors can increase / limit a wireless network. 


Thanks to Mr Gallagher and Mr Tierney for their help, support and encouragement to the students involved.  

A special congratulations to our sister Vincentian school, St Paul's Raheny, their 5th year student, Paul Clarke was named the overall winner of the 2014 BT Young Scientist Compeition for his project on “Contributions to cyclic graph theory”.

This is the time for students to be thinking of ideas for next year's competition.  Could you be the next Alexander Amini (our student who won in 2011, with a computer programme which analyses tennis)?
