Cork Students launch Crowdfunding Campaign to bring the latest Wearable Technology to the 2016 I Wish Conference.

Transition year students, and I WISH ambassadors, Anna McKenna and Niamh O’Connell from Scoil Mhuire in Cork are leading a crowdfunding campaign to raise at least €200 in one month through €2 donations be used to purchase a Ringly. The Ringly is a piece of wearable technology that vibrates and changes colour to notify the user when calls, texts and e-mails come through on their smartphone and will be used as prize for the Juniors Dragons Den competition at the upcoming I WISH event which aims to educate young girls about Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) and takes place in Cork City Hall on the 11th and 12th February.

I WISH is an award-winning partnership initiative between Cork Chamber, it@cork, and Cork City Council, supported by SFI, Dell, Cork County Council, UCC and CIT. The initiative was co-founded in 2014 by three Cork business women – Gillian Keating, Partner, Ronan Daly Jermyn Solicitors, Caroline O’Driscoll, Partner KPMG and vice chair IT@Cork and Ruth Buckley, Head of ICT & Business Services at Cork City Council.
