In November, Coláiste Chiaráin 6th Year students Hannah Lucey, Rubab Kabir, Hassan Shah and Liam Murphy won the CanSat National Finals which were held online this year. CanSat is a European Space Agency competition for 2nd Level Students (Transition Year and upwards) run by ESERO Ireland in association with CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory and third level colleges. Teams of school students compete to design, build and test a mini-satellite or CanSat. The competition gives students a feeling of excitement and technological achievement by launching their own satellite and gives them their first practical experience of a real space project. Well done to all involved!
