After receiving the Boston Scientific Medical Devices award in LIT Thurles earlier this year Laura Kennedy, Caitriona Ryan and Aoife Butler presented their project Hear-Band to the panel of judges and public. Their project aimed to help people with cochlear implants participate better in outdoor sports. They received a lot of attention and interest from various people and organisations for people who are hard of hearing.
Aisling Dwyer, Hazel Reynolds and Kiara Hearty presented their project No Mower Accidents to the judges also after being Runners-up in the Regional Finals of SciFest in LIT Thurles earlier this year also. Their project focused on lawnmower safety and aimed to reduce accidents caused by the blades on mowers when they come in contact with humans.
All six, bright young ladies were presented with an Excellence in STEM Award which they thoroughly deserved.
