Secondary Schools Compete To Win regional SciFest competition in DkIT

Posted on May 13, 2019

DkIT welcomed some of the most inquisitive minds in the North Leinster and South Ulster region to its campus for the 2019 SciFest regional programme last Thursday 9th May.

Hundreds of secondary school students from North Dublin, Louth, Cavan, Meath and Monaghan exhibited their Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) projects to compete for the coveted title of SciFest 2019 Regional Finalist.

Of the almost 130 projects exhibited at SciFest@DkIT 2019, the judges had a difficult task in shortlisting the regional winners. The top prize on the day, the SFI Best Project Award, went to Ruth Madden from Largy College for her project, ‘The Microplastic Filter – A Small Solution to a Global Problem’.

The student will go on to participate in the SciFest National Final where she will compete for the opportunity to represent Ireland at the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in Anaheim, California in May 2020.
