Scientific investigations

Earlier this spring, eighteen 1st and 2nd year students from Mountmellick Community School, along with their science teacher Ms Gallagher, travelled to Athlone IT to take part in Scifest 2014.

They had completed a range of projects from investigating which brand of tablet has the greatest vitamin c content to finding out how fresh fresh-milk really is.

Adam Culleton who is in first year in the school, was placed 2nd in the junior individual category for his investigation into the air quality surrounding using lichens as bioindicators.
