Last weekend certainly had a silver lining for former Coláiste Treasa student Sean O’ Brien. Sean claimed the runner up spot in the National Young Engineer awards which were organized by the Engineering & Technology Teachers Association, ( ETTA ) and sponsored by Miko Metas, Wriggle and Microsoft. The Award ceremony was held in the Mullingar Park Hotel.
As part of his Engineering course for his Leaving Cert , Sean was asked to design and make a model of a 3 wheeled roadster under certain parameters set down by the State Exams Commission. He entered his completed project in the Cork City and County Young Engineer awards in October, which he won, and in doing so qualified for the National finals. Well done to Sean and all involved.
