Ms Mary Mullaghy (ISTA National Chairperson) presenting an iPad as first prize to Laura Barrett at the Irish Science Teachers’ Association Annual Conference which was held in NUI Galway.

Congratulations to 2nd Year Student Laura Barrett who took first place for her car of the future design in the Invent Nano national competition run by AMBER at Trinity College. Laura’s car which had the ability to change colour, a solar and hydrogen powered engine, was self-cleaning and had Gecko tyres – a feature made from graphene which allowed the tyres to have extra grip in difficult conditions really impressed the judges.

We are also delighted to announce that Third prize in the same competition went to 2nd years Claire Reilly, Abbey Tully and Katie Byrne for their ‘solar powered water meter’.
