Inspiring the next generation of technology entrepreneurs in Ireland
Date November 16, 2017
Location Shannon Airport, Co. Clare, Ireland
ITLG Young Innovators event is designed to promote the development of problem identification, creative problem solving & solution development, leadership & innovation in our youth, and to ignite a passion for the fascinating world of technology. Our 3rd Young Innovators event will bring together nearly 700 second level students from schools across Ireland. These students will take part in a one day competition to come up with an innovative idea on how people will Live, Work, Shop, Play, Travel and Learn 50 years from now. Inspired by technology, arts and the sciences, the students will be mentored by experts across STEAM roles in business, research and academia, and will experience the incredible creative technologies and applications of sciences in business and research today. Teams will compete for the accolade as well as an array of the latest technology gadgets and other prizes. The top prize winners will be flown to Silicon Valley for an exciting week where they will see, first hand, leading technology companies in action.
“This was a once in a life time opportunity for the students. It inspired them to think outside the box and believe in themselves, and it opened up their imaginations to possibilities they might not have considered prior to this.”
-Emer Magee, Teacher for Winning Team 2016
