The first ever SciFest@Teen-Turn took place on 14 December in The Digital Exchange, Crane Street, Dublin 8.

Twenty-one students representing seven schools from Limerick, Cork and Dublin presented eleven projects. The projects were varied and covered a wide range of topics which included ' 'Eco Case', Cookies for Rookies', Effects of Migration on Teenagers' and 'An RFD Tracker to Scan Items Going In and Out of a Press to Help the Visually Impaired'.

The judges represented Intel, IBM and The Digital Hub. Congratulations to Isabel, Amanda and Sofija from Coláiste Nano Nagle, Limerick who were awarded the Best Project Award for their project 'Tracka'.

Well done to all involved.
