St Joseph’s students present their Scifest project at UL

On Friday last Christine Delaney, Kate Madden and Seamus Ryan of St Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh gave a presentation to the faculty of the Physical Education and Sport Sciences (PESS) department in University of Limerick.

We, along with 5 other groups from around the country presented our project from SciFest “ When in doubt, Swing it out”.

We had a great day. In the morning we chose to attend a workshop on sport bio mechanics and later a workshop on sports psychology which we found very interesting.

After lunch, we heard talks from 4 different professionals in Ireland who all work at a high level in the sporting field but have science as their degree. They use their science background to help athletes improve all aspects of their lives which results in an increase in performance and recovery.

Thanks to Elaine and Rhoda from UL who invited us and organised a great day.
