About CONFIRM TY Week
The CONFIRM Transition Year Programme went virtual in 2021 with students from 7 counties around Ireland taking part.
During the week the students completed workshops & activities with CONFIRM researchers & academics on topics ranging from the environmental impacts of Smart Manufacturing to 3D Printing.
Each student was assigned a research topic for the week and was tasked with designing a poster and presenting their topic to the rest of the group at the end of the week.
