Successes all round this week and another fabulous achievement for the science department!! Today at the Fota island resort, we competed in a science competition open to all East Cork schools. Jessie and Doireann worked on a project for many months involving horse placenta and it's potential use as a plant growth supplement. Doireann couldn't attend the final as she was busy in Tralee at Apprentice Chef final, but Onome ably stood in for her for the presentation of their project. They presented their project to a group of judges made up of UCC lecturers and Merck management and were rewarded joint second!! For that the girls got an iPad mini each. Great achievement!!
