Josh O’Sullivan and Swithin Pais project was ‘A statistical analysis into vaccine hesitancy in first year males’ and the boys were called on stage to accept their award last night in the Intermediate Social and Behavioural Sciences category.

This is the third year in a row CBS students received a category award in the competition.

Swithin and Josh’s project was selected from approximately 1,850 science projects submitted, to appear at the exhibition. In all, there were ten entries from Kerry schools, but the CBS entry was the only one from Tralee.

Liam McSherry of Scoil Phobail Sliabh Luachra won a special award for his ‘An investigation into Electroencephalography and how it can help emulate human empathy and emotion in Artificial Intelligence’ project.
