Sentinus Big Bang Competiton Winners Northern Ireland

St Dominic’s was well represented, with 2 teams competing at the Sentinus 2019 The Big Bang Competition
held in the Ulster University Jordanstown, on Monday, 24th June.

Following a gruelling morning of judging and a longer afternoon of sharing their project ideas to more judges and members of the public the pupils were tired by 3pm.

The second project from Catherine Walsh, Sophie McGregor and Cara McFadden won the Northern Ireland Young Scientist Big Bang Award. Their project title was “Could nutraceuticals stop cancer” and involved investigating which type of nutraceuticals stopped yeast respiring and therefore may stop cancer cells from growing in your body. They won the overall grand award
and will represent Northern Ireland in Birmingham NEC on the 11th-14th March. Congratulation to all the girls involved!
