Spohia Physics Competition

In December, the boys in 6th entered a science competition which was organised by the Physics Department in University College Limerick. 
Different teams in the class researched the physics behind different types of sport: For example: The physics of Tennis, Rugby, Hurling, Swimming, Basketball and Cricket and Soccer.
We were delighted to hear that from a selection of entries from schools all over Ireland, all our projects reached the finals and the St. Joseph’s team that researched “The physics of Tennis” went on to be awarded 3rd place. We are very proud of all our boys. Well done!!
