Transition year work experience

The TG group were delighted to host transition year student Mark Lynes from Colaiste Treasa, Kanturk, Co Cork, as part of his TY work experience programme. Mark has a keen interest in pursuing science at third level and during his time in the lab, he was able to assist with some synthesis, get a tour of the department and various facilities, while also gaining an insight into the day to day life of a research scientist. Mark took part in this years BT Young Scientist competition, with his project on international road safety winning a highly commended rosette. IMG_2659
