School of Computing Open Day 2010 Report

The School of Computing created an enjoyable event and received a strong turnout during the two Open Days. Friday was extremely busy with bus loads of students arriving and roaming the campus and Saturday there was a heavy presence of students and parents alike.

More specifically, we had approximately 350 students who attended our talks and approx. 800+ students enjoyed the game activities in our labs. There was a great buzz around the School and everyone seemed enthusiastic and motivated in what we had to show them.

Thanks to all those who helped out with the talks, Monica, Donal, Cathal and Mike and thanks to Jim Doyle for all his technical support. Thanks to CLARITY for the loan of the dance mat, which went down a treat and thanks to Redbrick and the Game Society for helping out with the fun stuff.
