Two Killorglin Community College students are to take part in Europe’s largest Maker Faire in Rome.
Jack Nagle and Eoghan McKenna have qualified from thousands of applications to exhibit their medical device ‘Dreamy Baby Prop’ at the event in Italy next week, which is expected to have 100,000 visitors.
The two young men, who are both 14 and in second year in Killorglin Community College, designed, developed and manufactured the device themselves, as both of them have younger siblings with reflux problems.
Dreamy Baby Prop allows a parent to effortlessly raise their baby to the medically recommended 30-degree elevation, to help them get relief from reflux, head colds, and sinus irritation.
Jack Nagle says they’ve developed two prototypes, and they’ll be taking the second electronic one to Rome.
