Well done to Christian and Niall, who won the IE Domain Registry (IEDR) award, and also received High Commendation ribbons. Joe O'Grady also got a High Commendation ribbon, and Joe Molloy did excellently to be accepted first time out as a First Year. Many thanks to Mr Stephen McGroggan for all the help and support he gives to all BTYSTE entrants.
Our school has three accepted entries for this year's BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition:

‘Developing an application to test security using python and web technologies’ - Stand number 2520 - Group - Technology
Christian Barton Randal (4A) and Niall Morahan (4C) have developed a suite of coding tests which can be used by any website to check for the most common hacking techniques to improve their online data security.
‘Coding a simulation of a predator and a prey’ - Stand number 2104 - Individual - Technology
Joe Molloy (1A) has coded a computer simulation of a predator-prey interaction which could be developed to predict how long an endangered species has in a given habitat before likely extinction.
