*Nicole Bujnowska and Hannah Vaughan.

FOUR LISDOONVARNA students were among the winners in the John Hooper statistical poster competition.

Regarded as one of Ireland’s most respected and prestigious schools’ competitions. The competition is named after the first Director of Statistics of the Irish Free State and has become hugely popular with both students and teachers alike. The competition provides an outstanding opportunity for students across the island of Ireland to showcase their data analytical and interpretation skills.

The John Hooper Statistical Poster Competition is a team competition and students must design a poster on any topic that they choose. Teams must comprise two or three members.

Students who have already worked on and entered a project in another science or statistical competition such as the BT Young Scientist Competition may also participate in CSO competitions subject to meeting the eligibility criteria.

Eilidh Lawless and Caoimhe McCarthy.

This year, six students from Mary Immaculate Secondary School entered the competition. Three teams were entered under the guidance of John Sims. The students involved were Eilidh Lawless, Caoimhe McCarthy, Nicole Bujnowska, Hannah Vaughan, Oisín Jackson and Paddy Lawless.

These students took two of the three prizes on offer in the competition. Nicole Bujnowska and Hannah Vaughan with an entry entitled ‘An Investigation into the Covering Behaviour of the Purple Sea Urchin’ won second place and the poster entered by Eilidh Lawless and Caoimhe McCarthy entitled ‘Does water temperature affect the righting ability of two species of starfish (Asterias rubens and Asterina gibbosa)’ won third place.

Victorious students will be presented with their awards at the CSO Awards Ceremony which will be held in Dublin on Tuesday 15 October 2024.
