On Wednesday 3rd May, three First Year students: Tommy Condon, Padraic Dwane and Shane Burke represented the school at Scifest, the annual regional Science Competition for second level Science students. Padraic Dwane and Shane Burke entered with a project entitled “Candy Chromatography” where they investigated the different colours that make up the outside colouring of skittles and M&Ms. Tommy Condon entered with his project “Javas Invasion”, a video game that he had made, very impressive! For this excellent project Tommy achieved a well-deserved Merit. Very well done to all three students.
