SciFest

Posted on : May 11, 2018

The science department in Sligo Grammar School is a very active one, with lectures and field trips a common occurrence throughout the year.  For the second year our TY students entered the SciFest Science Fair held in Sligo IT. The SciFest programme aims to encourage a love of science, technology and maths and students are asked to present and display their own hands-on scientific investigations. Three TY science projects from Sligo Grammar School entered this year and Callum Maguire received a “highly commended” for his project investigating “The Reflection of Light Off Wet and Dry Tarmac”. 
Two other projects were entered, Chloe Lopez’s project asking  “Is There a Connection Between a Person’s Nationality and Their Willingness to Solve Problems?” 
For the third project Dawn McCauley and Liam Kearney presented their investigation into “Invasive Plant Species Along the Garavogue River”
Well done all!
