Stratford College TY students (now in 5th year!) won three significant prizes at the online SciFest@College competition in the Intermediate Technology section, facilitated by TU Blanchardstown in May 2020. Two of these students have been selected to compete at the SciFest National Finals in November - a first for Stratford College!

Each of the groups developed extremely impressive coding projects during TY Computer Studies classes.

Cian and Finn won two prizes - the overall award for TU Blanchardstown and the Specsavers award for their project called 'Lost' - an online maze game for the visually impaired, while Alex and Ross won the Intel Technology award for their project using micro:bits and Scratch to simulate boxing and the benefits of such exercise. Josh, Moya Rae and Leo were also awarded Certificates of Outstanding Achievement for their project on their accessible gaming project.

Ms Gordon awarded them with their prizes on Thursday, 1st October and recognised the sustained hard work that each student had put in. We are so proud of you all.

As the outright winners at the TU Blanchardstown SciFest, we wish Finn and Cian the very best of luck as they will now be competing in the virtual SciFest National Final 2020 from 19th to 21st November.
