Bush scoops top awards at BT Young Scientist 2014.

Bush scoops top awards at BT Young Scientist 2014.

Conor Ryan, Stephen Lynch and Stephen Woods, impressed the judges with their project ‘Moo Boot – Protective Boots for Cows’and came away with a Highly Commended award as well as a special award from the Irish Patents Office. The transition year students have a keen interest in farming and put their experience and knowledge to good use in designing a protective and healing boot for cattle called ‘Moo Boot’.

The function of the boot is to tackle the expensive problem of foot rot, a bacterial infection which leads to pain and underperformance in livestock, subsequently costing farmers thousands of euro. Team member Stephen Woods came up with the idea after seeing his father, who is a local farmer, using wellies for the cows feet and thought that it would be much better to have a specialised boot which could address whatever foot problems livestock may have.

Bush student Kevin Murphy and his project ‘Comparing attitudes to MMA compared to GAA’ also won a ‘Highly Commended’ award. He discovered that people believed mixed martial arts to be more dangerous than GAA but the evidences he complied from local physios suggests different. He wishes to further investigate his findings. The school were proudly represented by four groups at the prestigious competition, the largest of its kind in Europe. All students had a wonderful time and are already planning their projects for next year.

Bush Post Primary are delighted to have been awarded their first Green-Schools flag, at an award ceremony in the Helix, DCU, Dublin, on Thursday 21st May.  The flag was achieved by the Green-School committee by examining the impact of litter and waste on the environment and exploring practical means for reducing the amount of litter and waste produced by the school. greenschools

The committee has worked tirelessly for over two years holding such events as recycling week, competing successfully in Junk Kouture, spring cleans, ensuring all students are knowledgeable of the benefits of recycling and introducing composting. The Green-Schools committee are delighted to have generated a culture of environmental awareness within the school and look forward to obtaining their next flag which concentrates on reducing energy consumption.

The school would like to take this opportunity to thank all students, teachers and County Council members,who helped in this rewarding process.
