European Space Education Resource Office (ESERO) Ireland and the CEIA – Cork’s Technology Network – are calling on secondary school students to take their first step into the world of space exploration. Teams of senior cycle students from across Ireland are being asked to design, build and launch mini-satellites in the shape of a soft drink can as part of the ESERO Ireland and CEIA CanSat Competition.
Pictured at the launch were, Limerick man Cyril Bennis, Space Tourist with Thomond Community College students, Raissa Pululu and Adam Kelly at Limerick Institute of Technology.
The competition, now in its seventh year, was officially launched today (Wednesday) in Limerick Institute of Technology by ‘space tourist’ and Limerick man Cyril Bennis, as part of National Space Week. Picture: Alan Place
