A Visit from a Young Scientist

Fifth and Sixth Classes really enjoyed the visit of Mark O’Dowd, a Transition Year student from Glanmire Community College, who won an award in the BT Young Scientist Competition and also won an award at the EU Young Scientist Competition in Milan. He explained his project ‘Injury increasing crop yields’ to the classes and gave them some great tips for science and science projects for primary and secondary school.

Trip to UCC

Sixth Class had a great day in UCC yesterday. As art of Science Week, we went to see Dr Death and the Medi-Evil Medicine Show. We learned all about the history of medicine from Hippocrates up to modern times. After the show, we went on a tour of UCC. We wore special robes and learned lots of interesting things about the university and its history and traditions.
