Timahoe NS pupils leap to winners’ podium
Timahoe NS 6th class students Sinéad Buggy and Laura Miller masterminded the winning Intel Mini-Scientist project ‘Game Changer – Leaping Labradors’. For the two bright 12-year-olds this involved the creation of a digital game for visually impaired children. The girls conducted extensive research amongst a number of interest groups before embarking on the design of their video game ‘Leaping Labradors’. The game is a typical platform game with the aim of reaching the highest possible level whole collecting points along the way. The game is specifically designed for visually impaired players. As part of the prize for the overall winning project, Timahoe N.S. receives a grant of €1000 from Intel.
The Laois People would like to congratulate Sinéad, Laura, their teachers and all the Timahoe NS community for this amazing achievement. Thanks to the Newsroom at Intel for the updates. Click here for more information on the Intel Mini-Scientists Competition.
