BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition 2016 - GSI Special Award
The Geology Prize winners were brothers David and Paul Hamilton, from Ardscoil Ris in Limerick, with a project called “Exploring and Evaluating 3D Model making as a Learning Technology for Simulated Experimentation of Abstract STEAM concepts in Geophysics and Astronomy”. 
Using models of earth and a light bulb they were able to demonstrate what causes the seasons, a marble and ruler model for asteroid impacts and a cog driven model to demonstrate plate tectonic boundaries, but importantly they did a really good statistical job of sampling 300 students before and after they used the models to try and teach them the concepts! Congratulations to David and Paul and teacher, Jack Corrigan.
