Plastic Islands Presentation

In Fourth class, we have been busy doing a project on marine litter. On Tuesday, Aisling,Luke,Tom and myself went to present our project on plastic islands in Maynooth. There were 7 schools there in total from all around Leinster.

When we arrived we played a quiz where we had to find information in the shortest possible time and we were first back to with the correct answers so we won a box of chocolates! After that, we did our presentation, we went first! A few more groups presented their projects after us and then we had a break. After, our break some more groups presented, we thought they were all really good.

Then we had lunch, it was soup and sandwiches. It was a great day. Today, we were told we won! The judges were really impressed with our presentation, our research and our project. So, we have been picked along with just one other school to present our project at the National Marine Environment Conference at the Royal Marine Hotel in Dun Laoghaire in December. We were told there would be over five hundred people there! We were really excited and nervous but happy we won.  Have a look below at some pictures we took on the day!
