Moate students awarded at the National Final of SciFest
Fifth year students Emily Ray and Sharon Seery, with their project ‘Dispel the Smell of Goat’s Milk’, reached the National Final of Scifest 2020. The competition took place virtually on 19th to 21st November. The students were awarded with Excellence in STEM trophies in recognition of their achievement. Emily and Sharon achieved the Best Runner-Up Project and at the Regional Final in May when they were in Transition Year.
Their project focussed on improving the taste and smell of goats’ milk and make it more palatable.
The health benefits of goats’ milk are well known; the reason for the lack of consumption is the milk’s unpalatable nature. They considered the breed of goat, the goats’ diet, cooling method and effect of additives. Congratulations to the students and their teacher Ms Cusack on their achievement.
