Ms. Somers, Ms. English, Ms. Walsh and Ms. Lawless (SNA) brought 66 students from 2 Oak, 2 Holly and 3 Ash to the 54th BT Young Scientist Exhibition in the RDS, Dublin on Friday 12th January. The students and teachers thoroughly enjoyed the trip. There were 550 student projects showcased at the exhibition. Project titles included 'What makes a good science teacher?' - 'Investigating the amount of synthetic dyes in soft drinks and sweets' -  'Classroom CO2 levels and their effect on student cognitive performance', and 'The development of an anti-microbial smartphone screen protector' to name but a few. In addition to these exhibits, there were many interactive shows including a homemade hoverboard, a RSA car that spun the students upside down, freezing flowers in liquid nitrogen and robot wars.

In the past 15 years, over 30 students from Enniscorthy Vocational College have successfully participated in the scheme, which has seen students from all European Union member states discuss on the floor of the European Parliament issues of social concern directly related to their study of the Social Education module in the Leaving Certificate Applied programme.

As part of the events to mark Science Week (Nov.12th-19th),the 5th year Biology students from Enniscorthy Vocational College attended the WexSci Science Showcase Day in the Wexford County Council buildings on Friday November 17th. The students had an opportunity to explore the many Science and Technology exhibitions on 'The Street' in the County Council buildings before attending a performance of 'It Takes Guts'. The show, presented by the London Science Museum, was a graphic account and display of the workings of the human digestive system. The performance was most informative, entertaining and certainly tested the fainthearted in the audience!
