Rosmini Students Win Leinster First League

A group of TY students representing Rosmini Community School won the Leinster Lego First League last Saturday. The students, all from Transition Year, were Hannah Yan, Louise Barry, Lucia Chidovat, Tuomas Bazzan, Robert O'Connor, Paul Simionescu, Robert Melciu and Flaviu Mare.

They beat six other schools to be crowned champions of Leinster. Students presented a research project on Hydrodynamics (the Engineering of water) and built and programmed a Lego robot to perform certain tasks within a given time frame. Students were also judged on how well they represented themselves, their school and how they got on with other school teams. Overall our students scored very highly in all categories.

All thanks to the students involved for their hard work and dedication. And thanks to Mr Mc Namara for his mentoring role.The UK and Ireland Final takes place on Saturday 24 February at the University of West of England (UWE) Exhibition and Conference Centre, Bristol.
