Mini Scientist Regionals 2019

Investigation: What is the science behind roller-coasters? Team members; Chloe, Kate, Lucy & Ailbhe.

We had to get up at 7:00am as our bus was leaving at 7:30 am😪. The bus ride felt so long as we were so tired!When we arrived at Blanchardstown IT we set up our board and roller-coaster. The event started at 9:00 am.

We had a lot of time to check out all of the other projects. The judges came around to us at about 11:00 am. We explained our project to them . After that we got our lunch and watched a science show by science Sue. We were called up to the stage to assist Sue in her experiments.  Her theme was potential and kinetic energy so we were experts!

Then at about 1:30pm it was the award ceremony.
The judges called out the names of the projects moving forward on to the next round. We didn’t hear our names straight away so we were having doubts😓 . But then, we heard our names being called out! We ran up to the stage and received our medals and trophy!🏆

We got our pictures taken with the Intel judges with our rewards. We took down our rollercoaster and wrapped our board in a plastic bag and went home on the mini bus.🚌

Our beautiful and shiny trophy🏆
