SCIENCE BLAST RDS

On Wednesday March 6th, 5th & 6th classes represented our school at the ESB Science Blast in the RDS.

Our project called ' The Ballinlough Motor Works' was an electric car which could sense both obstacles & paths. This machine was created using a Rasberry Pi, and was put together in our classroom by the children with the help of Peter and Marcia Hand.

The base of the car was kindly made on a 3D printer by Aaron and Eoin Rothwells uncle and Gerry McDonnell computers helped us out by providing a screen to display the computer code.

The judges gave us a very high recommendation for this very well thought out project and we all learned a great deal from the whole process.

Well done and thanks to all involved.
