👩‍🔬 BT Young Scientist Primary Fair 2024 👨‍🔬

Our sixth class students had the most incredible day exhibiting their STEM projects at the BT Young Scientist Primary Fair at the RDS on Friday 12th of January. 


We were absolutely thrilled and excited when all six of our sixth classes were successful in their project applications.


The BT Young Scientist Exhibition is one of the world's leading and longest-running school science exhibitions, celebrating 60 years this year! This wonderful event aims to encourage primary school students to develop their interest in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) in a non-competitive environment.


The six projects we presented at the event were:


  • Can wearable technology such as a Smart Watch or Fitbit improve children's health and well-being? - Ms. James's Class
  • The Five Second Rule - Fact or Fiction? - Ms. Byrne's Class
  • Estuary Science - Where Fresh Water Meets Salt Water - Ms. Bradshaw's Class
  • How Do We See Colour? - Ms. Millar's Class
  • Battle of the Senses: Is our Sense of Taste Affected by Smell? - Ms. Cahill's Class


As well as having the opportunity to present their projects to the public and visiting judges, all the students had the opportunity to explore and enjoy lots of other amazing STEM activities including other primary and secondary school project stands, live shows and practical STEM demonstrations.


It was a truly incredible learning experience and enjoyable day for all involved and we hope to have the opportunity to take part again next year.


A huge thank-you to all the sixth class teachers as well as Ms. Hayden, Ms. Creavin, Mr. Whiting, Ms. Whyte, Ms. Markey, Jane and the parents who accompanied the children on the day.
