RCC had once again an “Inspiring” day at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Lego League on Saturday 3rd February held in the The Galmont Hotel (the old Radisson Hotel in Galway).

The day began with a 9a.m. arrival at the venue to set up our display area for our project and do the fine tuning and tweaking of the EV3 Lego robot. The show kicked off with blaring music and flashing lights while introducing all 22 teams hailing from across the country. 

The first judging session started off with our robot design presentation, where the team members involved had to display their robot design and programmes to the judges. They also had to explain the tactics they used in the robot performance task missions.

They then took to the table while the rest of the team could only watch, hoping everything went to plan with the robot. There were three rounds in total to get the best points tally possible, by performing tasks programmed in the robot, on the mission table.

Between the rounds on the table, the team had to present this year’s project which was entitled “Hydro Dynamics”. This involved the team members coming up with an idea for improving water systems from the source of the water to the reservoirs to the households or industries to final treatment before it returns to natural source. The team began to research the project back in October with a visit to Glan Agua a company that treat and pump the cleaned water to Roscommon town’s reservoir. That was followed up by a visit to Roscommon Sewerage treatment plant. It was from the latter that the team got the idea to produce a leaflet to make more people aware of what not to dispose from your household drainage that clog up the sewerage pipes.      

 As the day progressed the team enjoyed the atmosphere in the main arena dancing and singing to the music until the final results were revealed. We had the 3rd highest score on the mission table which was the best placing we ever had since we first entered in the competition. While we were very delighted with that we unfortunately had not enough points to finish first to   represent Ireland in the European finals held in the UK, but they were awarded the “Most Inspirational Team” and were presented with the trophy on stage during the closing ceremony at the end of the day.

 

Well done to all the team who did an outstanding job representing their school. The team was as follows: Andrew Baliey, Leo Dixon, Liam Pearce, Gerard Van Opstal, Katie Reddington, Laura Moroza, Liam Clogher, William Connolly, Shane Thompson and Brian Killian. The school would also like to thank Mr. Donlon, and Mr. Mcloughlin (engineering teachers) who were the team mentors, for this year’s team.
