Students from Drumlease National School have been named runners-up for their entry entitled ‘Electricity Generation’, in this year’s Engineers Ireland Xperience Engineering Competition 2012.

Last December, all registered primary schools were sent out a pack from Engineers Ireland highlighting the theme for this year’s competition which was ‘Technology for Life’. Over a four month period, participants worked on their projects which reflected engineering in their local community. Recurring themes include health focused projects and wind energy.

The Leitrim School finished runner-up to Cahir Boys National School of Tipperary in the junior category, and John Scottus, Dublin in the senior division at last week’s final in the Helix in Dublin.
