First, second and third place winners at the first and second year science quiz held this week and a few other photos of the day
Hazelwood Junior Cycle Science students Tara O’Brien (left) and Lauren Moran (right) who came third in the Competition for their project on Migraine Awareness in recent Regional Sci-Fest Final.
Ruairí Hannigan (left) and Ronan O’Connor (right), Hazelwood College Junior Cycle Science students are pictured after winning the Irish Science Teachers Association Award for their Scifest Project, which was an investigation into the production of Selenium enriched dairy products with commercial potential. The group project by Ruairí, Ronan and Liam Power, (absent from picture) also won second place in the Junior Life Sciences Competition.
Transition Year Science students form Hazelwood College, Ava Mullane (left) and Mary Kate Fehin (right) are pictured with their award for ‘Best Project in Behavioural Science’ for their project ‘Accents: The Unspoken About Prejudice’
Hazelwood College students Jamie Hennessy, Sean O’Connor and David Noonan are pictured with their award for Best Project in Waste Prevention and Source Efficiency Competition for their project ‘Poo Power: An Investigation into the Use of Different Manure to Determine which Produces the Highest Energy Content.

Picture b: Hazelwood College students Lauren Moran (left) and Tara O’Brien (right) whose entry ‘Migrane- It’s not just a headache’ was an investigation into the prevalence of migraine in adolescents in Ireland. The project also examined people’s awareness of the effects that migraine has on people’s school, social and sporting life.
Picture c Hazelwood College students Mary Kate Fehin (left) and Ava Mullane (right) are pictured at the BT Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibition with their entry ‘Accents- The Unspoken About Prejudice’ which was an entry in the Social and Behavioural Sciences Section. This project aimed to investigate whether people form a prejudicial opinion on somebody based solely on their accent and whether we acquire this prejudice as we grow older.

Picture e: Hazelwood College students (from left) Caitlin O’Connor, Holly Hennessy and Yvonne O’Kelly are pictured at the Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibition recently with their project ‘An Exploration into the Acoustical Conditions Experienced by both Primary and Second Level Students in County Limerick. This project examined the effect being in a classroom had on student hearing.
Picture f: Hazelwood College students (from left) Liam Power, Ruairí Hannigan and Ronan O’Connor are pictured with their project at the Young Scientist and Technologist Exhibition recently. Their project, ‘An Investigation into the Production of Selenium Enriched Dairy Products with Commercial Potential’, was entered in the Biological and Ecological Section and aimed to allow for the production of selenium enriched dairy products benefitting bovine and human health.
Picture g: Hazelwood College Second Year students (from left) Sean O’Connor, David Noonan and Jamie Hennessy with their project ‘An Investigation into the Uses of Various Manures from Different Animals to Determine which has the Greatest Energy Supply to Farms’. The three students aimed to examine which manure produced the greatest amount of energy for farms: chicken. horse or cow manure.
Best of Luck to our 13 students taking part in this years BT Young Scientist Competition.
This year 5 group projects from our students qualified for the prestigious national competition.
The titles of this years entries are:
An Exploratory Investigation into the Acoustical Conditions Experienced by both Primary and Second Level students in County Limerick – Chemical, Physical & Mathematical Sciences Group
An investigation into the use of various manures from different animals to determine which has the greatest energy supply to farms – Technology Group
An investigation into the production of Selenium-enriched dairy products with commercial potential. – Biological and Ecological Group
MIGRAINE – IT’S NOT JUST A HEADACHE!! – Social and Behavioural Sciences Group
