Trailblazers lighting up the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition

Congratulations to our amazing Lucan Community College students who have been chosen as entrants in this year’s BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition. Five of our students have been selected to take part in this year’s BT Young Scientist Competition.

This year we have Gabriele Kolesnikovaite and Daniel Kolesnikovas, a sister and brother team, selected for their project entitled “An Investigation of How The Bi-Annual Clock Change Effects The Irish Population”, a very topical project. Transition Year team Cora O’Toole, Faye Murphy and Tara Phelan are working on “Women In Sport: a Study To Investigate and Examine The Most Effective Ways of Keeping Girls Playing Sport Throughout Their Teenage Years” and have already gathered over a thousand response to their online survey for their own topical investigation.

Click the link below to hear Cora, Faye and Tara explain more about their investigation from their stand at the exhibition.

A huge congratulations to these students, and also to their teachers Ms. Healy and Ms. Walsh, for being selected for the Young Scientist Exhibition. Best of luck this week in the RDS. Our Science team will bring all 1st year students to visit the Exhibition this week along with all students who entered projects but were not selected on this occasion.

DCG class win 3D printer for the college

Lucan Community College is delighted with the award of its first ever 3D printer from DDLETB as a result of the excellent standard of entries in a 3D design competition run recently.
Mr Carey accompanied 5th year DCG students Conall Tuohy, Rico Leung, Cathal Greene and Jake Coleman to the Rua Red Arts centre to the Celebrating Creativity competition ceremony where the finalist designs were displayed. Pictured here with CEO of DDLETB Paddy Lavelle the students were thrilled to be awarded a 3D printer for the college. Debbie Howlett (Head of IT) and Samantha Conroy (TEL support) with DDLETB organised the event with a group of enthusiastic students from some of our sister colleges.

Scratch Programming All-Ireland Champions


We were delighted when 2nd year students Darragh Bacon and Oisín O’Sullivan were awarded the Overall Best Project trophy in the national Scratch Programming Competition for 2015 with their project “Return to… Forest of the Dead” recently. This year there were over 800 entries to the competition with only 25 qualifying for the finals (two of which were from Lucan Community College). The 25 finalists were required to make a poster about their game/animation and to present it to judges and members of the public in the Dublin Castle Printworks Conference Centre on 30/4/15 as part of Techweek. Both the winning project and Conall Tuohy’s project “Adventure Quest” were very well received by visitors to their stands.

Scratch is a computer programming language used to create games and animations. It is a fun way to be introduced to coding and the IT industry. The user can create their project by connecting a variety of “blocks” together to get the desired outcome. The National Scratch Competition was started in 2010 as a way of encouraging young people to get involved in coding. Since then it has run annually and is growing in popularity to this day. The competition is open to schools and “coderdojos” (which are independent voluntary-run coding clubs) around the country.

Thanks to Ms McCarthy and Ms Gaffney for their support for the students throughout the year in Scratch Club. The projects can be viewed on http://www.scratch.ie/competition with a video showing the different events of Techweek here.
