Canada Clancy-Makwati, Thomond Community College, Limerick

Hi, my name is Canada and I’m a transition year student who has taken part with ‘CONFIRM Smart Manufacturing’ for work experience. I’m from Limerick and I attend Thomond Community College.

I decided to sign up for the Confirm TY Week as I have a great interest in STEM and I enjoy learning about the wonders of technology and how it works around us, I hope to do such STEM related things in the future.

  • I’ve enjoyed listening to the ‘Researcher sessions’ they were very cool & informative (my favourite was probably the 3D printing one!)
  • I have actually learned a lot this week a couple of things would be ‘How 5G works around us’, I didn’t really know much on the 5G network other than it was on phones but I actually found a lot more, learning about AI was very cool too as I didn’t know much. I also found out about 3D printing which is something I found really interesting too!
  • My poster topic is ‘What is 5G’ it’s basically about what the network is, how fast and advanced it is and how it’s changing our lives for the better in time.
  • My main findings about this topic was how quick 5G actually is compared to 4G and before (5Greaches 10 gigabits per second – up to 100 times faster than 4G).

It was truly a great experience and I’m glad I took part in it and was helped along the way by our supervisor and helper, Sean.
