Relishing the last days of summer as we begin planning for the autumn ahead...
Recent Highlights
Planet Emergency! : Cruinniú na nÓg 2019
During seven weeks of intensive workshops, young people of Fingal explored electronics, soldering, wearable tech, sculpture, spray-painting, as well as all the digital skills necessary to make large scale interactive audio pieces from everyday materials.
Over 2000 members of the public dropped in to enjoy the day with us, a national day of celebration of creativity in young people throughout Ireland. 
We can't wait to collaborate with Fingal Libraries again later in the year – watch this space!
The Ark: Easter Camp & Schools Workshops
Continuing our partnership with the Ark, We delivered a week-long Easter Camp as well as a series of workshops with visiting school groups. Working in teams, young people were challenged to apply their knowledge of magnetism in the design and building of unique games inspired by the exhibition, Game Plan. Along the way, they found out a whole lot more about polarity, conductivity and electro-magnetism.

Our Makers In Schools project is a collaboration with educate together secondary schools in Dublin and Cork. We are at the end of our first year and have learned so much.  We provided training and support, giving teachers and students greater confidence in working with creative technology in setting up their own school makerspace. So far we are delighted with the response from both students and staff. We are collecting data and look forward to sharing our results soon.
