BT Young Scientist

BT Young Scientist

A large number of students from the CBS have once again been chosen to represent the school at the BT Young Scientist exhibition taking place in the RDS in January. It is an amazing achievement for the students to have qualified for the 550 projects included in the competition, as thousands from schools all across the island of Ireland.

The students have been working hard on their projects in conjunction with their teachers Ms. Louise Gallagher and Ms Breege Grennan. The CBS has a long tradition of success at the BT Young Scientist competition, and this looks set to continue in 2019.

The projects and students include:

William Tully, Kian Moran and Leon Doyle submitted the project ‘The Effect that the Summer 2018 Drought had on Irish Farmers’; Ronan Lambe, Daniel O’Brien, Conor McNulty developed a proposal on ‘Effects of Copper Sulphate, Zinc Sulphate and Formalin on Footrot’; Darragh Hynes, Ben Hoare and Aaron Glennon are working on their project entitled: ‘How Healthy are alternative sausages Compared to the Traditional Pork Sausage’; Mark Cox, David Burke and Eoin Bracken who are working on ‘What is the Optimum Conditions for Drying Turf’; Daniel Brennan, Liam Hamrock and Niall Brennan have qualified with their project ‘The Effect of Roofing Material on the Quality of Harvested Rainwater.’ Jamie Finnegan has also qualified with his project on whether an Autism Centre in a school makes students more empathetic.

Well done to all students for qualifying and many thanks to their teachers for their continued support and guidance with the projects.
