YOUNG SCIENTIST: Congratulations to Kalin Foy, former pupil of Crecora N.S. who was a finalist in this year’s BT Young Scientist competition which was held in the RDS Dublin last week. Kalin now attends Coláiste Chiaráin in Croom and her excellent project earned her second place in her category and the Ei Electronics Special Award. Her invention which so impressed the judges was a very clever ‘Buzz Alarm’ for the hearing impaired. It can be integrated into the user’s doorbell and other alarms to give a vibrating and visual alarm to those with limited or no hearing. This is a very viable device which could definitely go into commercial production and would make a huge contribution to the safety and security of a vulnerable group. Well done Kalin.
