BT Young Scientist Exhibition

This year’s BT Young scientist Exhibition saw much talent from the Midlands.  Maeve Mc Mahon a fifth year student at Our Lady’s Bower, Athlone, was speaking on Midlands Today about her project “Getting Out and About”.

“Getting Out and About” looks into Ireland’s free travel scheme and older people in Ireland. The project, Maeve describes was inspired by her granny who is a widow and uses her free transport to visit her children and grandchildren.  According to the project most people don’t want to see the scheme be gotten rid of because it is extremely important to elderly people.
