A big congratulations to M4TH5 Ireland, a team of 4th and 5th year students from the Institute, who won first place in the City Final of the Student Enterprise Awards last Tuesday.
Alex Kililea, Elias Chiam, Niall Carolan, Ethan Fibikar and Aaron Dinah will now go on to compete in the National Final in Croke Park on May 3rd.
The team developed M4TH5 Ireland, an online location for like-minded lovers of maths to share their love of the subject and access learning resources.
The Student Enterprise Programme, an initiative run by the Network of Local Enterprise Offices of Ireland, is Ireland’s largest and most successful student enterprise programme with over 23,000 second level students taking part each year.
Students from 1st year to 6th year get to set up and run their own business and find out what it’s really like to be an entrepreneur by taking part in this 8 month long enterprise education learning programme.
We’ll be following their progress over the next few weeks and wish the team every success in the finals in May!
