Scoil Chonglais success at SciFest @ College in IT Carlow
April 25, 2018
Scoil Chonglais 3rd Year students Sean Nolan, Shay Barrett and Nathan Rogers were winners of the Intel Intermediate Technology Award at SciFest at College in Carlow IT on Wed 25th April. The students presented their project, Modelling Engineering Applications with Technic Mechanisms and Mindstorms Robotics. The project has been ongoing since the students were in 1st Year and over the time they have developed skills related to Engineering Mechanisms and Programming Robots in a lunchtime club. The model on the day was a 3 storey elevator, programmed to go to the selected level where each floor has a different door opening mechanism. This project is ongoing in the school with a group of 1st years working on Technic Models over lunchtime, with the plan to move on to Robotics next year.
