Past Summercove pupil Emer Hickey along with Ciara Judge and Sophie Healy-Thow, all current students of Kinsale Community School, last week picked up the top prize at Google Science Fair 2014. The young scientists will also receive €50,000 funding towards making their project, which helps farmers increase profitability and crop growth, a commercial reality.
They also won a trip to the Galapacos Islands with National Geographic, a personalised Lego trophy and a astronaut training course with Virgin Galactic in the Mojave desert.
Congratulations to all involved in their submission and we wish them well for the future.
