2nd prize went to Louise Gallagher for her project 'Fanad Lighthouse'. Louise is also a 3rd year primary initial teacher education student completing her degree with the Church of Ireland Centre, DCU. Her project was highly praised for the strong link between the lighthouse and solar power. Her project was also noted as having a strong connect between science and sustainability.
Both students were awarded their prizes at a local project celebration event in DCU on Wednesday 15th February 2017. Pictured left is Louise receiving her prize from Dr Orla Kelly, Lecturere in Social, Environmental and Scientific Education at DCU St Patrick's Campus.
