Congratulations to the Irish Science Student Teams who were awarded Gold and Silver medals at the European Union Science Olympiad (EUSO), which took place in the Faculty of Sciences and Technology in Almada, Portugal. 

The European Union Science Olympiad (EUSO) is a team-based science competition for the European Union's youth where they can display their capabilities in natural sciences. EUSO was founded in 2003 by Dr. Michael A. Cotter. Each participating country sends two three-student teams to the final round, which takes place during one week every year in different countries within the EU.

The two-part competition is spread over two days and the duration of each task is four hours. Each task is a practical activity incorporating elements of biology, chemistry and physics. The tasks are designed to connect the branches of science, provide relevant and inquiry-based challenges, engage all team members, support self-pacing, prompt higher-order and creative thinking, and encourage substantive communication
