Yet another SciFest student excels at international level. Following Louis Madden's success in winning two awards at Intel ISEF in Phoenix Arizona in May 2016, Lúc de Barra, Coláiste Raithín, Bray won a second place silver medal award at INESPO in Utrecht. Lúc represented Ireland at INESPO as the winner of the SEAI INESPO award at the 2015 SciFest national final.
‘My SciFest journey was a truly life changing experience. On the road from exuberant early experimentation to accurate scientific analysis I developed skills in research, presentation, organisation, time management and scientific methods, and discovered a new found spirit of perseverance and determination. Primarily though, the whole experience was huge fun, and I made friends from Monaghan to Malaysia and everywhere in between.'
