Great excitement as the St PIUS X girls exhibit their project ‘Mars- an Earth like World’ at the Primary Science Fair in the RDS. RTE showed great interest on two occasions as both news2day and RTE News interviewed the girls. The girl spoke confidently and knowledgeably, and were not the least bit fazed as they were put in the Spotlight! They were especially excited to meet Tommy from News2Day who we usually watch daily.
Throughout the day the girls enjoyed looking at the other primary projects and also got to visit the BT. Young Scientist section. They were given lots of freebies and enjoyed interacting with budding young scientists and of course real life, professional scientists from all over the country!
Two separate judges really put the pressure on as they grilled the girls on their research, experiments and presentation. Thankfully Martin the 3D Martian was still standing at the end of day!!! Finally the judges presented the girls with a well deserved plaque. A great day was had by all!
