Year 9 Students Top Technology Innovators

Meabh and Anna receive Award

St Killian’s Year 9 students Méabh McIlwaine and Anna Ewings picked up the CREST Bronze Technology Award for Creativity at this week’s Sentinus NI Youth Innovators The Big Bang Fair at the University of Ulster.

They designed and made a Virtual Music Maker.  They can use a Wii Remote and Nunchuk to connect to a Raspberry Pi computer via Bluetooth and play the drums with them.

The sound of the drums can be changed to any instrument sound or they can custom make their own sounds for a completely new instrument.
