Transition Year Work Experience Blog #4

As part of our TY work experience week during Engineers Week 2020, we asked our placement students to write a short blog post outlining their experience with CONFIRM. We will be posting these periodically over the next month so keep an eye on the website for updates!

Here is our fourth instalment from William:

“My name is William. I go to school at Ardscoil Rís in Limerick. I am a Transition Year student and I’m taking part in CONFIRM’s TY work experience program.

I chose to do my work experience with CONFIRM as I like coding and enjoy working with robotics and code together so this TY work experience program looked very interesting to me.

My favourite thing I did this week was 3D printing. I got to create a key ring in Solid Works and 3D print it for myself. I found doing the 3D printing fun, as I enjoyed using Solid Works. Learning the history of 3D printing and learning how to 3D print was very enjoyable.

I would highly recommend doing Confirm’s TY work experience program if you are interested in doing coding or robotics or if you want to just try those two out and see if you’d enjoy it.

This week has been extremely fun. The work we did was interesting and the workshops were even better but what also helps to make an experience fun is who you do it with!”
