Best of luck to Team Fury at the F1 in Schools tournament on Friday 04 March, 2011!
Check out their website.
Four students from 5th year (Richard Morris, Shane Griffin, Kristopher Greene and Aodhan Collins McEvoy) under the guidance of Engineering teacher Mr. Ganly are currently taking part in an exciting competition called Formula 1 in Schools. F1 in Schools is open to all secondary schools and involves: designing and manufacturing a 1/20th scale F1 car made from balsa wood which is powered by a compressed air canister. The team members from Tallaght Community School decided on their team name and agreed it should be named Team Fury.
Each member of the team has taken up roles in the project:
* Team Manager - Richard Morris
* Design Engineer - Kristopher Greene
* Manufacturing Engineer – Aodhan Collins McEvoy
* Marketing and Communications Manager – Shane Griffin
To qualify for the competition each team must submit a five page plan covering the topics of putting a team together, designing a car, sponsorship, marketing and innovation. The team had to use this plan to show their commitment to the project, and also to show that the team was serious being part of the competition.
