This year the Syndic8 National Technology final is on the 16th May We run three programmes for students. RC rally, Drone racing and F1 in schools. They are designed to test students in the areas of design, engineering, electronics, basic physics and maths, CAD/CAM software, enterprise to name but a few. This event is geared at introducing students to STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths).
The event is at the Royal Hospital, Kilmainham, Military Road, Killiney, Dublin 8 on Wednesday the 16th May. It will be starting at around 9:00am and will run until 5:00pm. You can register on our website Syndic8.org. In each section, ie F1 in schools, RC rally and drone racing there will be a sign up sheet which has to be filled out online. Once completed and fees paid (range from €120-€360 depending on package chosen) teams are then registered into competition.All three competitions will run throughout the day concurrently. F1 in schools, RC rally and Drone racing. They will be distributed evenly across the venue with team stands in those areas. All people in attendance will be able to walk around the venue viewing the different competitions unfold.
Major engineering/machining companies and third level colleges will be at the event also talking to students, teachers and schools on what it is like to be an engineer. This is a great opportunity for students interested in engineering to talk to people in that field.Overall students/teachers/schools can expect a fun day out where they will see the work and dedication that students put in throughout the year to build there cars/drones. 3D printers, laser cutters and lathes will all be in use at the event by companies to show what the machines are capable of, which is why we are inviting schools from across the country to our event as a chance to meet the companies, colleges and competing teams.
