The School of Computer Science recently ran a very successful virtual Computer Science Experience Day for Transition Year students in county Galway, on Friday October 22nd, 2021. This event was funded through the HEA ICT Camps initiative.  347 students took part in this year’s virtual event, from 8 different Galway (both city and county) schools, with essentially a 50/50 breakdown between male and female participation (50.1% Males and 49.9% Females).  

On the day students participated in 4 workshop sessions which covered Visual Design, Web Programming, 3D Modeling and AI Music. Students had opportunities to submit mini projects throughout the day. 

The event was organised by Karen Young in collaboration with the School Admin team (Anne Kinneen, Deirdre King and Ger Healy), one of our Technical Officers (Joe O’Connell), 7 other members of academic staff (Enda Howley, Josephine Griffith, Attracta Brennan, Sam Redfern, Frank Glavin, James McDermott and Adrian Clear), and 4 student ambassadors from the School of Computer Science.
