6 projects from the Ursuline College competed in this year’s exhibition at IT Sligo. The students performed brilliantly in both preparation and presentation and their talents did not go unrecognized. Every project group won a prize and were delighted with their day. In the Intermediate category, Aoife Maher, Aoife Devlin and Marianne Kelly won 3rd in Life Sciences for their project on brainwaves and stimuli. Shauna McDonagh and Amy Kilfeather received 3rd in intermediate Physical Sciences for their project on resistivity of different shaped wire. Emma McGoldrick, Orla Reilly and Sarah Flynn received 1st place in intermediate Physical Sciences for their project on decreasing the emissions of wood stoves. Emma Casey, Ellen Woodward and Maeve Brogan were the inaugural winners of the Institute of Physics special award for their project on seeing sound micro vibrations. Lucy Morrison, Kyra Cawley and Roma Hynes won the special award for business innovation for their increased efficiency wind turbine design. Finally, Fatma Dogan won two awards in the senior Life Sciences category for her project on left handedness versus dyslexia. She won both 1st in category and the Newstalk Communicator special award. All projects were the result of many months of hard work and effort. Well done!! A big thank you to all the science teachers!!
