Natasha Myers, a second year student from Killorglin Community College, based her project on how board games can help people with dyslexia.

She was one of 58 students who went on to exhibit their projects at the national final held in the Marino Conference Centre in Dublin.

She discovered that the skills involved in playing board games, including visual actions and problem solving help young people to process information faster and for longer periods.
