Over 550 students from around the island have attended ADAPT Centre Problem solving workshops in November and December 2017. The workshops took place in Antrim, Carlow, Cavan, Clare, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Leitrim, Limerick, Louth, Roscommon, Waterford and Westmeath. There is one further workshop to take place in Donegal next week.
The workshops covered problem solving strategies and prepared secondary schools students to try their hand at ADAPT’s problem solving competition the All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO). A huge thank you to all our AILO tutors for travelling and running these workshops and to all the schools, LERO in the University of Limerick and NICILT in Queens University for hosting us.
Students and teachers can still sign up at http://tempailo.adaptcentre.ie/enter/ until the 19th of January 2018. The first round will take place in schools around the country on 29th January 2018. The top 100 can then qualify for the final in Dublin on 13th March 2018 with the top 4 going on to represent Ireland at the International Linguistics Olympiad (IOL http://www.ioling.org/) in Prague 26-30 July 2018.
