Team Ireland make it to the final 12 at the Imagine Cup

 

A team from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth have won a place in the finals of the Imagine Cup 2007 with their InGest Project Signal software solution. From the team:

 

We are developing a software solution aimed at educating people in the skill of sign language. We feel such a solution would greatly benefit the deaf community by providing relatives, friends and colleagues of deaf people an accessible means of learning sign language.

Congratulations and well done for a spectacular Irish effort!!
