Unveiling the Wonders of Technology and Future Mobility
Today, our COO, Wassim Derguech visited Kilcolgan Educate Together National School in Clarinbridge, Galway to share insights into the transformative world of technology with a group of eager young minds. As a parent and a dedicated tech enthusiast, this experience was not only enriching but also a reminder of the incredible potential of nurturing the curiosity of the next generation.

The highlight of the day was the showcase of drones and a glimpse into the ÉALÚ-AER project. Wassim presented captivating demonstration videos, illustrating the capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles. The students were treated to a visual spectacle, sparking their imagination and prompting discussions about various applications of drone technology across different industries.
