This year Students in 1st and 2nd year participated in an after-school STEM 1 & 2 club for 5 weeks each. 1st Year students worked hard to design and produce creative mobile phone holders for their desks and 2nd year students were tasked with designing a motorised car.
Over 40 students participated in the club and were assisted by Paul, Mick, Mr Donaldson, Ms Finalayson, Ms Pollard and Mr Boran in constructing the devices.
Well done to all the students involved who worked with Solidworks and Circuit Wizard software to design the project online first and then build the project in the woodwork and metalwork rooms, learning skills how to work with various materials including wood, metal and plastic. Over the duration of the programme the students developed skills using various pieces of equipment and tools to build the projects.
Students involved in the project presented their projects to Ms Hennessy and each student received a Certificate of Participation.
Next year Tallaght Community School will continue to run the STEM clubs were students will be asked to design and create new projects. All students are welcome. Pics
