On the 3rd December 2018 the Electronic & Computer Engineering (E&CE) department supported by Confirm, (the Smart Manufacturing Centre), Centre for Robotics and Intelligent Systems, (CRIS), SFI and the Royal Society, held a one-day robotics workshop with 5th and 6th Class pupils from Ballinahinch National School. During this day the students learned to build and program Lego BOOST robots. The event was organised by Dr Thomas Newe and Dr Sinead O’Keeffe from E&CE, and Sean O’Brien from Confirm. It was a huge success and the pupils went away full of enthusiasm for a future career in robotics and STEM.
