This week, members of Year 10 represented Inst in the final of the Young Innovator’s Competition, organised by Sentinus. For 12 weeks, pupils have been working hard on projects entitled ‘Engineering for the Future.’ We were very pleased to announce that two teams were chosen to enter the final, which took place at University of Ulster, Jordanstown.
Luke Dennison, Matthew Fulton, Ben McKenna and Caleb Smyth developed a ‘Get Help’ Mental Health app; and Oisin Curran-Moloney, Brent Brennan and Jay Pearson invented ‘FV’ – a virtual reality gaming suit. Both teams worked extremely hard in the final, presenting to judges from STEM companies across NI.
In particular, congratulations to Luke Dennison, Matthew Fulton, Ben McKenna and Caleb Smyth who were runners up of the CREST Technology Award, and winners of the ExamTime Award for use of software to support learning.
