Eileen Reidy from Our Lady’s Bower, Athlone, will attend the Euro Science Open Forum 2012 in the Convention Centre Dublin, next Friday July 13. Earlier this year, Eileen participated in Agri Aware’s Green Dragon Secondary Schools Innovation Challenge where her idea of helping seeds to grow in drought conditions using hydrogel polymers (gel in which water is the main dispersion medium) won her the top prize of a €7,000 development fund. Along with this prize fund, Eileen was also awarded the opportunity to showcase her idea at this year’s Euro Science Open Forum, a week-long event that will be attended by over 6,000 scientists, business leaders, and government officials from across Europe.
