Laois primary school leads the way at BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition

It’s not everyday that a famous weather presenter admires your work – but that’s exactly what happened to the pupils of The Heath NS yesterday.

Deputy Head of Met Éireann and RTÉ weather forecaster Evelyn Cusack was among one of the judges to praise the pupils on their project on what the optimum surface for snails to travel is.

Ms Cusack told teacher Michael Dowling that it was one of the best projects she had seen at the event.

Sixth class pupil Jack Keyes told LaoisToday about the project.

He said: “The grass is the worst surface for snails to travel on.

“Concrete is actually the best surface for snails to travel on. On concrete they go 69cm in 10 minutes.”

Future scientists

Jack and all the sixth class pupils said they were having a brilliant day at the BT Young Scientist & Techonology Exhibition, and are looking forward to competing in it when they go to secondary school.
