Oran and Seamus impress at Big Bang Fair

Pictured are Oran McDonnell (left) and Seamus Delargy from St Killian’s College Garron Tower with their Technology teacher Mr Sean Connolly on their return from Birmingham after finishing runners-up in the Junior Engineering Category at the Big Bang UK Young Scientists and Engineers Competition.

The boys designed and made a device to text farmers when cows are coming near calving. It uses the temperature of the cow and the increase in the number of tail swishes for activation and then sends a warning text to the farmer that the cow is near calving.

St Killian’s Technology Department would like to acknowledge sponsorship to attend the Birmingham event provided by the following five companies.
