On the 11th of January 2012 12 students from TY were off to the BT Young Scientist exhibition.
The entire TY year applied for the competition back in October but it was the 12 girls, within 4 groups, that had the privilege of attending the competition for 4 days.
The titles of the four groups accepted were " Is a fear of spiders a learned or natural fear?", " An analysis of how a communities awareness of their energy use can influence their overall energy output", " Surfs app" and also "The differences in people's perceptions of natural and synthetic scents".
Though the girls did not receive any prizes they said that the competition was an amazing experience and the best prizes that they received were the great new friends, countless laughs and wonderful memories to last a lifetime as well as numerous radio interviews and yes.....even a picture with Ryan Tubridy :)
