BT Young Scientist 2019
What a year it’s been at the BT Young Scientist Awards for Coláiste Muire. Shane Williams was highly commended for his study on sexual orientation and drug and alcohol abuse. Rachel Cotter and Jack Mullen have been chosen to represent Ireland in Copenhagen at the Danish young scientist, and took second in their category ( biological and ecological intermediate group) for their study from fish to fork, ingestion of microplastics by commercial fish off the Irish coast. Peter Lehane thought his work was done when he won 1st place in his category, intermediate individual social and behavioural. But it wasn’t, he won the best overall project in all of social and behavioural for his study media meddling with memory – an investigation into how it affects your recollection.
We are so proud of all students who represented Coláiste Muire this year; Olivia Gavin, Róisín Duffy, Shane Williams, Jack Mullen, Rachel Cotter and Peter Lehane.
Most importantly of all, a huge thankyou to Ms McMahon and Ms Lehane who devoted countless hours of their time to help our students.
