Robots designed and built by 320 primary school students were launched last week at An Róbó Seó (The Robot Show) in Dublin City University.

Students and teachers from six Gaelscoileanna spent the last nine months preparing projects for the event which demonstrates how astronauts can tackle various problems on the moon, such as how to find water, store food and create energy using robotic computational materials. The event was funded through the Schools Digital Excellence Fund. The Schools Excellence Fund has provided funding to Gaelscoil Eiscir Riada, Gaelscoil Naomh Pádraig, Gaelscoil na Camóige, Gaelscoil Uí Fhiaich, Scoil Uí Dhálaigh and Scoil Uí Riada. © JULIEN BEHAL PHOTOGRAPHY.
