We are the TY team from St. Nessan's Community College, Limerick who won a competition "The Only Way Is Up" which is coordinated by Dr. Norah Patten, Communications and Outreach manager at IComp. It is funded by Science Foundation Ireland Discover Science and Engineering, the Irish Centre for Composites Research (IComp) and the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Limerick. It is enabled through a partnership at NanoRacks LLC and is supported at the National Centre for Excellence in Maths and Science Teaching and Learning (NCE-MSTL) and the Materials and Surface Science Institute (MSSI). We are the first team ever from Ireland to compete in and win this competition. Our team is called the "Space Cowboy Builders" and is made up of four team members Jason Hannan, Kevin Hanley, Johnathan Roche and Jamie O'Connell and our teacher Gavin Doyle. This is our first blog post having found out we were the winners of this competition. We will be posting live news feeds and updates on our experiment regularly via Facebook, Twitter and Blogger. Our experiment will include the Effects of Concrete in Micro-Gravity Conditions and will be launched on May 1st in NASA Wallops in Virginia on the Orb-2 Mission. Please follow us on Facebook and Twitter for news and updates on our upcoming work links for Facebook and Twitter are at the end of this post. Thank you.
