Three young people from Naas will star in RTÉ’s new science adventure series The Mountain this Friday February 17 at 5.30pm on RTE Two.
Sarah Kelly, Broadfield View, Kilcullen Road; Kate Coffey of Gleann na Riogh, Monread and Ruth Clancy, Cherry Grove, Sallins Road, make up the blue team on the programme.
The girls are taking on a team from Limerick as their skills are put to the test in science-based challenges around an adventures style course.
In each episode, the teams of three young people aged 11-12 make use of scientific knowledge given to them to complete tasks in the rounds: basecamp experiment, The big predication and CS why crime solving. The action culminates with the final assault obstacle course race to the summit.
