CD Colour Blind Scanner Project
Integrated College Dungannon (ICD) student Joanna Paisley is welcomed to a reception, in Stormont, by Minister John O’Dowd. This was in recognition of her successful entry, to the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition to be held in Dublin RDS in January. Following a successful proposal and extensive research Joanna is in the process of developing a colour blind scanner. Joanna is delighted that her project has been selected for entry to the exhibition. More than thirty projects from schools in Northern Ireland have qualified for the Exhibition which takes place at the RDS in Dublin from 11 to 14 January 2012. The Year 10 student came up with the proposal to develop a colour blind scanner and to acknowledge her entry to the exhibition was invited to meet the Education Minister, John O’Dowd at an informal reception in The Long Gallery at Parliament Buildings. During Joanna’s visit to Parliament Buildings she had the opportunity to visit the state of the art, £1.2 million facility known as the STEM Module. Miss Sinead Fitzpatrick, Technology teacher at ICD explains, “STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, areas the Department of Education are keen to promote, as developing skills in these areas is key to ensuring the future competitiveness of our economy.” The STEM Module, which Joanna has already visited when it came to ICD last term, is a 58 square metre mobile laboratory and workshop which provides interactive workspace and interchangeable teaching resources, allowing it to transform from a biology laboratory one day to an engineering workshop the next. Joanna also took part in a guided tour of Parliament Buildings and viewed an interactive technology display facilitated by BT and partners. Mrs Ros Stewart, Science Teacher at ICD congratulated Joanna saying, “Joanna is a talented student. She has worked hard on her proposal for this project and is determined to develop a colour blind scanner which is not only practical but cost effective. I will look forward to supporting Joanna as she creates her product and also to accompanying her to the RDS in January”.
