"Factories of the Future" Competition Entries

Each Industrial Revolution throughout history has had a major impact on the way people live and work.

We asked the Primary and Secondary School pupils of Ireland to tell us what they thought the “Factory of Future” will look like and how smart manufacturing technology and Industry 4.0 will have changed the way we work 100 years from now!

The prize; a kit containing home experiment equipment related to Industry 4.0 as well as an invitation for a tour at the new CONFIRM Headquarters in Limerick. 

Below are a selection of some of the amazing ideas that were sent to us. Well done to everyone who entered!
