Success at the BT Young Scientist Exhibition 2014Two of the three projects qualifying this year from County Laois were from Heywood Community School! Ella Barrett was very successful with her entry entitled “An analysis of the effectiveness of using iPad applications in the teaching of Mathematics” picking up two awards. We are also very proud of our two first year students Caoimhe O Keefe and Ruth Bergin who won the hearts of the crowd at the exhibition.
