CBS Exhibit at BT Young Scientist

A large group of students from the CBS have once again represented the school at the BT Young Scientist exhibition in the RDS last week, one of the world’s largest & longest-running project-based science & technology initiatives.   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 BT Young Scientist allows students to engage in STEM, as well as fostering their organisational and presentation skills. 


The students have been working hard on their projects in conjunction with their teachers Ms Breege Grennan and Mr Niall O’Sullivan. The CBS has a long tradition of success at the BT Young Scientist competition, and we are delighted that this is the case again in 2019. 

 The projects and students include: 

William Tully, Kian Moran, Daniel Brennan and Leon Doyle with their 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 presented their project entitled: ‘How Healthy are alternative sausages Compared to the Traditional Pork Sausage’; Mark Cox, David Burke and Eoin Bracken posed the question: ‘What are the Optimum Conditions for Drying Turf’; Daniel Brennan, Liam Hamrock and Niall Brennan qualified with their project ‘The Effect of Roofing Material on the Quality of Harvested Rainwater.’ Jamie Finnegan presented on his project: ‘Does an Autism Centre in a primary school makes students more empathetic to ASD’.
