SciFest STEM Superstars 2014

On Friday the 7th of November, brothers Harry, James and Jack Knoblauch and teacher Marie Vaughan will travel to Dublin, to proudly sci fest 2represent their school St Brendan’s College Killarney, Co. Kerry, in the SciFest National Final. The event will take place in the Marino Conference Centre, Griffith Avenue, Dublin 9. The SCI Discoverer Best Project Award Winner/s from each of the 15 SciFest@college 2014 venues will be given the opportunity to present their projects to a team of judges, teachers, parents and invited guests. The guest of honour will be Minister Damien English TD.

The prizes include:

-The SciFest 2014 Grand award. The recipients of this prize will represent Ireland at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Pittsburgh in May 2015.

-The Berlin Long Night of Science Award

-The Sustainable Energy Award of Ireland (SEAI).

The brother’s have done extensive research on their project title “Is there a future for micro-hydroelectricity in Ireland?” Their project has been nominated for the two awards – the Grand SciFest 2014 Award and the Sustainable Energy Award.

As a result of the Knoblauch’s commitment and innovative ideas, it has lifted the school to new heights. This has been a record year for St Brendan’s College with the SciFest Awards and the school being represented in the BT Young Scientist Competition 2015. A year we won’t forget too quickly. These award nominations recognize that much of their success is directly attributable to the students themselves, their parents and their mentor teacher Ms. Marie Vaughan
