TY Students attended an Introduction to Robotics Workshops at the DCU LEGO Education Innovation Studio on Oct 2nd & 3rd. It is a programme given to school where students can learn about programming; utilising areas such as Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. The DCU staff were very impressed with the students enthusiasm and good level of knowledge on both days. Thanks must go to the students for their exemplary work.
Congratulations to second years who won the most innovative tech award for their project during tech week 2014. Members of the team, who are known as Eco Eire, devised a device to check carbon dioxide levels at any time via a mobile phone. The award was presented to Isaac, Georgia, Tony and Octavian during the tech awards in Dublin Castle. Missing on the day was Zac who played a huge role in developing the idea. The project reached the nationwide final and the team was delighted with the win. Thanks to all for their support.
