Second year students Maria Slattery, Helsa Okoro and Ralia Vandysoueffi recently competed in the Junior Robot Competition organised by the Cork Electronics Industry Association. 'We built our robot from scratch using Lego Mindstroms', stated Maria. 'We had to programme our robot to do basic tasks such as following a certain course at speed,' added Ralia. 'The tasks were challenging but enjoyable - we had to find our own solutions to the assigned tasks. It involved independent learning in a group situation' concluded Helsa.
