Next time you take a DART trip keep and eye out for the fabulous art work of Gorey Educate Together pupils, Aine Dunne and Sophie Ryle. Aine and Sophie were announced national winners of the UCD Conway Institute AccesScience Poster competition at the annual AccesScience 2008 event. The girls travelled to Dublin this week to the pretigious O’Reilly Hall where they received their prizes from RTE’s Pat Kenny. The poster competition, which is open to primary and secondary students, offered the girls the opportunity to combine their scientific interests and artistic talents to communicate this year’s theme of “Science In Our Lives”.
Fifth class pupil Aine, took first place for her poster entitled “Science Is Growing” while Sophie received third prize for her “Science Is Great- Try It”. Both posters will be displayed on DART trains and Stations where they will be viewed by over 100,000 commuters a day! Well done Aine and Sophie!
