Despite Lockdown, five  5th year students have maintained contact via technology to continue work on their CanSat project.

The students are entering the European Space Agency CanSat competition, run by ESRO Ireland in conjunction with CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory and the Institutes of Technology. The SGS CanSat is designed to record GPS, Temperature, Pressure, Humidity and UV Light Orientation. It uses a 1km-range antenna to transmit and receive data. The team has set up a dedicated Website for their project as well as Instagram and Facebook accounts. We wish them all the best in the competition.
