Mary Immaculate Secondary School entered two projects in SciFest@LIT. This was held at the Limerick campus on the 30th April 2019. Leah McNamara and Jessica O’Donohue took part in the competition with a group project “Snail communities in three habitat types in the Burren”.

They were awarded first prize in the Junior Life sciences category. Congratulations to Leah and Jessica.

Maeve McMahon, who was researching how a trainable Weka could be used in seashore research, was the second entry from the school. Her project was an “Evaluation of the use of software as a tool to count populations of different shellfish on seashores”.

She was awarded second place in the Junior Life sciences category.

She also won the Environmental Award for her project.

Congratulations to Maeve.

Both projects were under the supervision of science teacher John Sims.
