Here's a highlights video of the first ever group of TYs at Le Chéile Secondary School
This January, Róisín Gleeson, Niamh O’Connor and I (Jessica Odemena) had the honour of displaying our project “The Big Bingewatch Theory” at the BT Young Scientists’ Exhibition in the RDS.
We had worked for months conducting our experiment on the effects that “bingewatching” has on the brain’s ability to retain certain pieces of information. We were so proud that our project was recognised by such a prestigious event.
When we arrived at the RDS on the first day, we were overwhelmed by the sheer number of students at the exhibition. There were hundreds of people milling around, and hundreds of projects with titles long enough to make your head hurt.
Each day we spent in the RDS, we learned something new - not always about quantum physics, but about the people and the world around us.
I could see the confidence growing in each of us with every person we explained our project to, and we took every bit of constructive feedback we were offered with a smile. It was amazing to discuss something we had worked so hard on with scholars, teachers and students alike.
I loved every second we spent in the RDS, from the judging to the events after hours and all of the laughs we had along the way. I think I speak for all three of us when I say that participating in the BT Young Scientists’ Exhibition was an incredible experience, and we’d do it all again in a heartbeat.

Have you ever wondered why TYs in Le Chéile choose which core subject they do each day?

After the success of the collaboration of Le Chéile TY PE and Leinster Rugby last year, which even brought the Grand Slam and Triple Crown trophies to Le Chéile, it was a great privilege to welcome coaches from Leinster Rugby to introduce rugby to this year's TY PE students. Irish International and Leinster scrum half Ailse Hughes and New Zealand born Leinster back row, Nicole Purdom delivered a great session of skills and fun drills to the girls. You can follow Leinster Women's Rugby in their interprovincial campaign as they play against Munster next weekend. We wish Ailse and Nicole the very best of luck from all at Le Cheile Secondary School!🏆
