We were delighted to welcome the former winner of the BT Young Scientist Competition, Ciara Judge, to our new school today, where she addressed all of our first-years and encouraged them to apply for this year’s BT Young Scientist Competition. She also spoke to those second-years who are currently working on their entries.
Ciara told the students of how she got involved and the project which helped her win the competition. She went on to win the European Contest for Young Scientists, win the main prize in the Google Science Fair in California and to top it all off, she was named one of the top 25 most influential youths in Time Magazine in 2014.
Our school is delighted to have Ciara visit us and we look forward to having her back very soon again.
