Dunmore CS Students win GMIT CANSAT regional Final.

Two transition year teams participated in the local GMIT regional Cansat final, with Team CAN-Struction being victorious on the day. They will now compete in the national finals in Birr on Friday April 15th. The competition is an Engineering-Science Technology Project run by the European Space Agency.The aim of the competition is to design and manufacture all the sub-systems of a satellite and fit the contents inside the volume of a coke can. Teams were required to measure air temperature, air pressure, air humidity, altitude, soil temperature once the satellite landed and transmit all the data wirelessly to a nearby laptop. Students were required to assemble the components together, programme them, and also design a parachute to allow for the safe return of the completed module once dropped from a height. Below is a short video of last years national final, to give you a brief outlay of the overall project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EeUNIGFHCYQ

Bond Traders Challenge

Well done to our students from TY and 5th Year who took part in The Bond Trader Challenge in association with Bank of Ireland at The Raddison Blu Hotel, Galway. On the night, students worked in teams to manage their own bond portfolio by responding to real market scenarios. Well done in particular to “The Bond Blitzers” who performed exceptionally well.
