The Intel Mini Scientist competition gives primary school students the opportunity to explore science through project based learning and exhibitions. The Intel Mini Scientist Exhibition is a program which allows primary school students to develop science related projects which are then exhibited at a science fair held in the school hall. The winning project selected in the school exhibition then go on to take part in the Mini Scientist Regional Final event with the possibility of continuing on to the Grand Final Event. The competition is open to 4th, 5th and 6th class students.
Each year the pupils of Scoil an Linbh Íosa spend a number of weeks preparing their products in anticipation for the judges to choose the winning project. The children set up their projects in the halla where all school students and staff, along with the judges, visit and are able to witness the wonderful creations.
